Russia and CIS Summit on Anti-Corruption
Minimize the Risk of Improper Payments in an Era of Increased International Enforcement

Foreign companies doing business or investing in the Russian Federation and CIS countries face complex and unique anti-corruption compliance challenges. Problems of corruption in Russia and the CIS for foreign investors have increased dramatically in the last several years. Allegations of bribes required by government officials directly and through intermediary companies are rampant.

Local leaders have recognized this problem and on July 31st, 2008, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed the National Anti-Corruption Plan. A new Federal Law against corruption is expected very soon. At the same time, U.S. companies, and foreign companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges, must comply with the FCPA when doing business in the region. FCPA compliance is especially challenging in Russia and the CIS and many pending investigations reportedly involve compliance issues in the region.

If your company is doing business in Russia or the CIS, you must put a comprehensive anti-corruption compliance program in place and be prepared to act promptly and effectively to remedy any problems that do arise.

This one-of-a-kind Summit on Anti-Corruption brings together an exceptional faculty of seasoned corporate ethics and compliance executives, senior attorneys, forensic accountants and government officials. They will provide a comprehensive update on the anti-bribery landscape in Russia and the CIS, the intersection of the FCPA and local anti-bribery laws and how to implement robust anti-corruption policies to comply with local laws and the FCPA, including:

  • Who is a “government official”?
  • What kind of gifting or payment is acceptable and in what instances?
  • How to create a culture of ethics
  • Due diligence: best practices for a prospective third party relationship
  • Creating a Code of Conduct that matters in Russia and the CIS
  • Conducting internal investigations

Participants will also receive a comprehensive set of written materials prepared by the speakers for the conference. These are invaluable reference materials which you will use again and again long after the conference is over.
