ROCK CENTER FOR CORPORATE GOVERNANCE EVENTS
- The Future of the FCPA: Danger Ahead for Issuers
The Rock Center and SVDX present The Future of the FCPA: Danger Ahead for Issuers.
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a hot-button issue for enforcement agencies in the United States, and for companies around the world that may be subject to the FCPA's long extraterritorial reach. Nonetheless, many executives remain unsure of the law's scope and requirements, and of the best practices for FCPA compliance. There are also important considerations regarding the benefits of self-reporting potential FCPA violations to U.S. authorities and cooperating with those authorities in their investigation of FCPA-related misconduct. The SEC and DOJ have tried to shed light on some of these issues by releasing new guidance and policies and by publicizing official letters of declination. What has been the impact of this guidance, and how is the landscape of enforcement changing?
Join us for a panel discussion of these and other issues. The event will also feature a brief demonstration of the new Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Clearinghouse, launched by Stanford Law School in collaboration with Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, presented by Laura Kabler Oswell, Partner at Sullivan & Cromwell, and Kristen Savelle, Associate Director of Empirical Research at the Rock Center for Corporate Governance..
