In November 2010, the joint effort of DOJ and the SEC has resolved several investigations wherein international companies pleaded guilty to the violation of anti-bribery provisions under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). With these latest FCPA actions in mind, foreign companies as well as their subsidiaries and affiliates face considerable challenges in creating and implementing effective FCPA compliance guidelines.
In live webcast, the Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished thought leaders and key regulators to help foreign companies and others which are bound to abide by the FCPA understand new compliance guidelines.
