The Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission are committed to enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-corruption laws. In 2010, they launched an enforcement initiative against private equity and hedge funds. The implications of this new initiative are far-reaching and cut across all private fund operations, particularly when such funds are purchasing and acquiring foreign companies.
- The implications of anti-corruption enforcement to the business operations of private equity and hedge funds;
- The extent to which officers, directors and employees at private equity and hedge funds can be held liable under the FCPA and other anti-corruptions law for violations;
- The impact of the FCPA and anti-corruption laws on the purchase and sale of foreign companies; and
- The need for private equity firms and hedge funds operating to re-tool their compliance controls and mechanisms to protect themselves from enforcement.
