Corruption poses a significant legal and economic risk for corporations doing business around the world, particularly in developing and transitioning countries. The US Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are fighting corruption by increasing the number of investigations, settlements and prosecutions for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

In recent years, the DOJ and SEC have aggressively enforced the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, targeting industries as wide-ranging as energy, health care, and retail.  The agribusiness industry could be next.

The government's increased FCPA enforcement activity has caused the management and boards of multinational corporations to become more concerned about their compliance efforts. This webinar explains how an organization can minimize the risks posed by foreign bribery by:

  • Understanding the practices prohibited by the FCPA and other applicable laws;
  • Remaining up to date on FCPA enforcement trends;
  • Recognizing "red flags," circumstances under which the risk of corrupt practices is high and enforcement authorities expect corporations to be particularly vigilant; and
  • Evaluating the most appropriate systems to achieve corporate compliance.
