The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act has become a major source of liability for US and foreign firms and individuals with total fines and penalties exceeding $6 billion in 2020, or over 2.5 times the amount of the previous record in 2019, which had already been described as “by many measures, the most significant year ever in FCPA enforcement.” Many of the high-profile cases over the past decade have involved large multinationals such as Total, Alcatel, Eni and Tyson Foods.  Join us for a CLE on how individuals and small companies can implement programs to avoid or reduce liability.
