THE UNITED STATES' FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT: UNDERSTANDING ITS REACH AND IMPLICATIONS

 

Mr V Jesudevan
 
 

 

Synopsis

The enforcement of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) continues to be a significant priority for regulators in the United States. Crucially, the extraterritoriality of the FCPA has serious implications for both individuals and corporations (including non-US subsidiaries) operating in Singapore. The sanctions imposed by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) or the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) typically run in the tens of millions of dollars. Notably, between 2010 and 2016, the monetary penalties imposed exceeded US$4.5 billion dollars.

To better serve clients or assist them to develop effective compliance frameworks and internal controls, it is imperative that both dispute resolution and transactional lawyers as well as in-house counsel be familiar with the ambit of the FCPA as well as the DOJ’s and SEC’s enforcement ethos.

To help busy legal practitioners digest and appreciate the key aspects of the FCPA, this seminar seeks to provide a snapshot of the salient aspects of the law in this area including the:-

  • Anti-bribery provisions;
  • Accounting provisions; and
  • Significant FCPA enforcements actions and recently negotiated settlements.

This seminar is recommended for all lawyers, and legal counsel who wish to be apprised of the law regarding the FCPA and recent related developments.
