Last year saw an unprecedented number of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions brought against multinational companies. In our increasingly global marketplace, companies need to be more vigilant than ever when developing, implementing, and monitoring their compliance programs and when responding to red flags.

Foley and KPMG, LLP, were pleased to invite legal and compliance professionals to an executive briefing in Silicon Valley on the impact of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Our panelists discussed:

  • Key elements of the FCPA using real-life examples
  • What the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Department of Justice expect regarding your compliance program
  • What you can do to mitigate risk from third party transactions, including acquisitions, joint ventures, and distributors

Speakers:

  • David Farrell, Vice President, Chief Compliance Officer, Yahoo!
  • Ivonne Mena King, Vice-Chair, White Collar Defense & Corporate Compliance Practice, Foley
  • Guido van Drunen, Director, KPMG Forensic

CLE/CPE
You may qualify for up to two CPE Credits when you attend this seminar. No advanced preparation or prerequisites are required. CLE credit will be applied for after the seminar.
