Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), global companies are facing increased scrutiny from US civil and criminal enforcement officials and a real threat of disgorgement, severe monetary penalties and compliance monitors. The US Department of Justice and the US Securities and Exchange Commission continue to focus on the enforcement of the FCPA, making an effective anti-corruption program essential for all companies doing business internationally.

David Wilkins, Director of Global Ethics and Compliance at The Dow Chemical Company; David Krakoff, former federal prosecutor in the District of Columbia; and Claudius Sokenu, former Senior Counsel with the US Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Enforcement, will discuss recent developments in FCPA enforcement activity.ÿ The webinar will focus on:

  • Building compliance programs
  • Dealing with intermediaries
  • Gifts, travel and entertainment
  • Mergers and acquisitions

This webinar is the second in our series, In Focus: A Corporate Litigation Web Series, which is hosted by Mayer Brown LLP and Incisive Media (formerly American Lawyer Media). This complimentary web series will examine litigation issues facing in-house counsel and business executives.
