Wednesday, September 18, 2013, 3:00 p.m. – Friday, September 20, 2013, 3:00 p.m.
The Westin Georgetown, Washington, DC
As enforcement of anti-corruption laws in the United States and abroad continues to be a top priority for law enforcement, the Institute will provide a timely and substantive briefing on recent developments for companies, their officers and employees. This year’s program will examine trends stemming from recent proceedings brought by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as address recent challenges to the FCPA both in Congress and the courts. The Institute will also provide a more in-depth focus on certain recurring issues faced by practitioners and companies alike. Whether examining liability presented by other federal and non-U.S. laws in the event of a potential FCPA violation or minimizing liability in connection with complex international business transactions, the program will provide practical tips from experienced government, corporate, and private practitioners. In addition, the Institute will feature both an in-house perspectives panel and a panel dedicated to SEC enforcement and how it has evolved since the SEC’s establishment of its FCPA unit.
