New York City Bar Recent Trends in FCPA Litigation, Enforcement & Compliance 2016
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") continues to be one of the focal points of the Securities Exchange Commission's and the Department of Justice's enforcement program. Enforcement actions, civil and criminal, are continuing at pace and the cost of resolving FCPA actions is getting more onerous. At the same time, the UK Bribery Act and other foreign anti-corruption laws are gaining in prominence. Multinational companies increasingly face bribery risks in their international business activities. Such risks can, however, be detected and managed. Mayer Brown partner, Larry Urgenson, will participate on an experienced panel of private practitioners, regulators, and prosecutors who will provide an in-depth analysis of the FCPA's current trends and implications. They will discuss timely important information on the latest enforcement trends, international developments, compliance best practices, risk assessment and mitigation.
