About Steve Spiegelhalter

Steve's experience stems from his time as a federal prosecutor with the United States Department of Justice's Criminal Division, Fraud Section, FCPA Unit; Principal Investigations Counsel of a Fortune 30 company; in private law practice at a multinational law firm; and at EY.

Steve has investigated business conducted in over 40 countries, including allegations relating to alleged violations of laws governing transnational bribery and corruption (including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act); money laundering; revenue recognition; false claims; antitrust; the sale of securities; and mail and wire fraud. Steve's experience also spans a substantial number of industries, such as technology and aviation; financial services; natural resource exploitation, including oil and gas, iron mining, and drilling services; health, life sciences, and medical device manufacturing; and government and defense contracting.

Steve gained extensive transnational investigative experience during four years as an attorney in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Unit of the Fraud Section at the United States Department of Justice (Criminal Division). While there, Steve was lead prosecutor in a number of high-profile matters. Among them was the prosecution of a managing director of a major US financial institution for circumventing the bank's internal controls — a matter in which the government declined to prosecute the company, based upon the quality of it's internal controls and compliance program.

Event Synopsis:

Following the issuance of the U.S. Department of Justice's 'Individual Accountability Policy' (also known as the Yates Memorandum), serious debates and discussions over its possible implications on the prosecution of corporate wrongdoers have come into play. The Yates Memo, which demonstrates DOJ's increased effort in holding individuals accountable for corporate wrongdoing, also instructs that "to be eligible for any cooperation credit, corporations must provide to the [DOJ] all relevant facts about the individuals involved in corporate misconduct." This requirement would likely have negative implications for companies and would affect the ever changing FCPA enforcement paradigm. To avoid possible legal risks and liabilities, it is important for corporate executives and officers to monitor the developments in the Yates Memo.

In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the important aspects of the Yates Memo and the Evolving FCPA Enforcement Paradigm. They will provide an in-depth discussion of this significant topic. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective risk mitigation strategies while ensuring compliance with FCPA laws.

Key topics include:

•          The Yates Memorandum - An Overview

•          Significance of the DOJ's Individual Accountability Policy

•          Possible Implications on the FCPA Enforcement

•          Compliance Requirements and Challenges

•          Best Risk Mitigation Strategies
