Manatt has partnered with CohnReznick for an exclusive presentation on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for middle-market companies. Please join us on November 12 at the CohnReznick Financial Managers Learning Forum for this informative and educational event.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Department of Justice (DOJ) have announced a new focus in regard to the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act), a broadly-written and aggressively-interpreted anticorruption act. Middle-market companies, unaware of their FCPA exposure, find themselves facing federal prosecution (individual and corporate), sizable legal and investigative costs and stiff penalties.
By the end of this session, you will understand the:
- FCPA – the act and its requirements.
- Rising tide of enforcement and related defense costs.
- Projected impact on the middle market with recent case histories.
- Components and hallmarks of compliance programs that help avoid FCPA violations and mitigate the consequences of inadvertent violations.
Jacqueline Wolff, co-chair of Manatt's Corporate Investigations and White Collar Defense practice group, will speak on "The FCPA: Middle Market in the Crosshairs" during this event.
