Government resources devoted to investigating and enforcing the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) are at an all-time high. In 2014, the U.S. Department of Justice collected a record $1.25 billion in criminal fines on seven corporate enforcement actions, setting an all-time record for the Department. Recent FCPA enforcement actions and disclosures demonstrate that no industry is immune from FCPA scrutiny, and FCPA sweep investigations across industry sectors are becoming more common and challenging.
Join us for a discussion with top in-house and outside counsel experts, as well as prosecutors from the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as they examine the significant developments in the enforcement, compliance, and defense of the FCPA in 2014 and the first quarter of 2015. This all-star panel will discuss notable corporate settlements, FCPA litigation and government enforcement actions, and developments with international anti-corruption laws. The panelists will also look ahead to potential advancements and trends in 2015.
This event is co-sponsored by the Women's Bar Association of the District of Columbia, the American Society of International Law, the Washington Foreign Law Society, the International Lawyer's Network, the Women's White Collar Defense Association, D.C. Bar International Law Section, and the ABA Section of International Law.
