Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance:
Fighting Corruption Without Breaking the Bank

Doing business internationally is challenging in the best of times. Recent headlines alleging bribery and corrupt business conduct in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa underscore the potential risks. How can companies create an organizational culture against corruption without excessive spending on compliance?

Our January 17 roundtable will address this question with the insights of FCPA attorney Dulce Foster from Fredrikson & Byron.  Topics for discussion include:

  • The FCPA and its basic requirements
  • The pervasiveness of global corruption and the risks of ignoring it
  • Creating a culture against corruption
  • Striking the right balance between risks and costs
  • Tools companies are using to manage corruption risks with their employees, subsidiaries and business partners

Our roundtable will be moderated by Ron James, CEBC president and CEO.
