Video Summary

Chris Skinner, a partner in the firm’s International Trade and Business practice, pairs up with Chuck James, a partner in the firm’s White Collar and Investigations practice, to provide a one-hour overview of the latest government investigations trends and compliance best practices. Together, Chris and Chuck cover a wide range of topics including defining the export controls and sanctions regimes (DDTC, ITAR, EAR and OFAC, among others), what constitutes violations, latest penalties, defining the highest area of risk and recent violations, and the same for the anti-corruption standard (FCPA). Our speakers go on to define trends and provide observations moving forward, including the extraterritorial reach of sanctions and FARA. They closed with case studies and best practices on voluntary self-disclosure, internal investigations and compliance programs.
