21st National Conference on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
The Premier Legal & Regulatory Anti-Corruption Compliance Event

The past 12 months produced the largest number of FCPA cases, the largest criminal fine to date and the largest combined sanction ever imposed for violations of the FCPA. Recent settlements have resulted in heavy civil and criminal penalties for both individuals and corporate offenders, disgorgement of profits and, increasingly, the imposition of independent monitors. Foreign governments, primarily in Europe, are also cracking down on corruption and actively cooperating with US enforcement officials.

The increase of FCPA enforcement makes prevention an even higher priority than it may have been in the past. The absence of preventative measure is almost certain to result in substantially increased penalties if an issue arises. This makes an effective anti-corruption compliance program essential for all companies. With record-setting sanctions involving well-known companies, global organizations have to reassess their own anti-corruption measures to prevent lapses that might lead to damaging and costly enforcement actions.

Now in its 21th successful year, the American Conference Institute's National Conference on the FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT is the event that corporate counsel, compliance officers, outside counsel and consultants rely on for comprehensive, insightful, and practical guidance on critical FCPA compliance issues. Benefit from the practical perspective of seasoned corporate FCPA compliance executives, get an update on enforcement and policy initiatives from top Government officials and FCPA attorneys, and learn how industry is setting up internal controls to comply in this constantly changing global legal landscape. This year’s agenda will include the latest information on:

  • Changes you need to make to your compliance program as a result of recent cases against companies and individuals
  • How government agencies evaluate voluntary disclosures
  • The FCPA's definition of facilitating payments: when grease becomes a bribe
  • Deciding whether you've investigated "enough": how much is enough in trying to learn the facts?
  • Risks and concerns when a joint-venture partner is a governmental entity
  • What your system of fraud risk internal controls needs to accomplish
  • Communicating with government authorities: balancing cooperation with maintaining an effective defense
