Although foreign corruption and bribery activities run rampant in every industry, the energy sector exposes itself to a higher risk compared to other businesses, as it often operates on larger scales and deals involving countries with different corruption and bribery laws and regulatory requirements.
The heightened enforcement of the FCPA, along with the government’s collaboration with other countries, has intensified the crackdown of violators who are now faced with higher penalties and irreparable reputational damages.
The stakes are high. Companies in the energy industry must keep themselves abreast of the recent developments and trends in complying with the aforementioned act. They must also come up with effective strategies and techniques to mitigate the risks of exposure to potential FCPA violations.
In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help companies in the energy sector and their counsel, understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of recent FCPA trends and developments. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective strategies and techniques in ensuring maximum compliance with the FCPA.
Key topics include:
• FCPA Enforcement in the Energy Sector: Statistics
• Recent Trends and Developments
