With the DOJ, SEC and other regulators bringing a record number of FCPA actions – along with record fines – the need to conduct diligence for potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act has been heightened. The DOJ has announced that the unit responsible for enforcing the FCPA is set to grow by as much as 50% over the next few years - and the SEC's newly-created FCPA Unit is continuing the SEC's focus on charging individuals and companies for FCPA violations. In this program, you will learn the latest in how diligence is being conducted and how reps & warranties related to FCPA violations are being negotiated.

Join these experts:

  • Brian Saulnier, Partner, K&L Gates LLP
  • Soren Lindstrom, Partner, K&L Gates LLP
  • Keith Hennessee, VP and Chief Compliance Officer, National Oilwell Varco, LP
  • Susan Munro, Partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Tailoring FCPA diligence from country to country, industry to industry, and deal to deal.
  • Strategic issues related to FCPA diligence.
  • Best practices in conducting FCPA diligence.
  • What should a buyer do if FCPA violations are uncovered during due diligence?
  • What deal protections should a buyer try to negotiate to protect itself from potential FCPA liability?
  • What should a buyer do to protect itself post-closing—particularly if initial FCPA diligence was circumscribed by seller?
