Patrick R. Hanes, Williams Mullen
Evelyn M. Suarez, Williams Mullen


The DOJ and SEC have issued their long-anticipated Resource Guide regarding the agencies’ Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) enforcement. The Guide offers a useful handbook on the FCPA and the agencies’ current enforcement positions and priorities that are worthy of review by companies doing business, or contemplating doing business, in overseas markets. Join Williams Mullen attorneys for a brief program addressing key points and questions about the FCPA Guide and what it means to your business. Among the topics to be addressed are the:

  • Burden on companies to address the risks of corruption if they do business abroad
  • Industries facing greatest risk of corruption
  • Increased risks of corruption created by increased exportation opportunities for U.S. companies
  • Agencies’ interpretation and application of:
    • the definition of a foreign official;
    • gifts and entertainment;
    • “hallmarks” of an effective corporate compliance program;
    • pre-acquisition due diligence and post-acquisition integration of foreign operating entities into compliance programs.
