Event Synopsis:

In November 2017, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a new Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) policy on Coordination of Corporate Resolution Penalties. Aside from making the FCPA Pilot Program permanent, the new policy also adds a "presumption" that DOJ will issue declinations when corporate self-disclosure, remediation, cooperation, and disgorgement meet the standards, thus, increasing incentives for companies' self-disclosure.

Companies should be proactive in addressing possible violations to avoid potential risks and legal pitfalls. They should also keep themselves abreast of the recent developments concerning the government attorneys' approach in conducting investigations in light of the new policy.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help businesses understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the new FCPA corporate enforcement policy and will offer best practices in developing and implementing compliance and control procedures to help them avoid scrutiny and lessen the impact of an investigation.

Key topics include:

• New FCPA Policy: Overview
• Recent Enforcement Trends and Developments
• DOJ's Focus on Individual Accountability
• Risks and Pitfalls
• Best Compliance Practices
• What Lies Ahead
