Corporate Compliance and the DOJ

Discuss Anti-Corruption, Best Practices for Mitigating Risk, and Successful Investigations

14-15 Sep 2017
New York City, NY, United States of America

Why You Should Attend

Corporate Compliance and the DOJ

The FCPA is a robustly enforced federal criminal anti-bribery statute used to exact billions of dollars in penalties from companies and to send implicated executives to prison.  2016 witnessed enforcement on a global scale unlike any other year. No matter where they are located, the FCPA must be on companies' radars.  The DOJ routinely and increasingly works cooperatively with its foreign counterparts.  Moreover, the majority of FCPA enforcement actions are brought against non-U.S. companies, including seven of the ten largest penalties ever imposed.


Attendees will learn from practitioners who have been in the trenches, have built and overseen effective programs, and have succeeded under DOJ and SEC scrutiny. They will empower attendees with the know-how to fully understand this law and its implications, while taking substantive steps to guide their companies to mitigated risk.  You will also gain critical insights regarding how to manage an FCPA issue if one arises.
