TOPIC: The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
SPEAKERS: Lawrence Friedman, Barnes Richardson & Colburn
Barry Spevack, Monico and Spevack

Corruption is a common fact of business life in many countries. The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act seeks to prohibit U.S. companies and their management from participating in corrupt activities overseas. The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are charged with enforcing the act. This program will give an overview of what constitutes a violation of the act, who is covered by it, and examples of recent FCPA enforcement activity.
