"FCPA Considerations in M&A"

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

2:00 - 2:45 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

The need for companies to take the FCPA and other anti-corruption laws into account in their M&A activities has never been greater. Unwary companies can face liability for their target's pre-closing FCPA violations, but proper planning can avoid or significantly mitigate liability risks. Come hear a panel of three leading lawyers as they discuss how to deal with FCPA issues in M&A transactions, including practical guidance on the due diligence process, how to hand FCPA issues in acquisition agreements, and what to do about problems you discover in due diligence. Join:

  • Audrey Ingram, Partner, Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP
  • Vince Martinez, Partner, K&L Gates LLP
  • Gary Stein, Partner, Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What do the DOJ and SEC expect from buyers with respect to FCPA issues at target companies?
  • What are best practices for structuring and conducting FCPA due diligence?
  • How should companies address FCPA issues in purchase agreements?
  • How should the parties address FCPA or other corruption issues identified during due diligence?
  • What should be done between signing and closing to prepare to incorporate the seller into buyer's compliance program?
  • What should asset buyers, joint venture partners, or minority investors take into account in considering the FCPA issues in their transactions?
