Adequately Addressing Due Diligence
“In a significant number of instances, DOJ and SEC have declined to take action against companies that voluntarily disclosed and remediated conduct and cooperated with DOJ and SEC in the merger and acquisition context.”
— FCPA, A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
While FCPA compliance is top of mind for many multinationals, the complex expectations surrounding mergers and acquisitions are among the most common hangups—and frequent causes for enforcement action—for organizations. In this webinar, we’ll take a deep dive into the M&A and due diligence provisions of the FCPA to help you better understand government expectations and share the practical implications for corporate compliance professionals.
To best provide attendees with a clear understanding of this area, and actionable advice to apply to their own efforts, the discussion will include:
- Who and what falls under the purview of the FCPA’s M&A provisions
- The importance of due diligence
- How today’s companies handle due diligence during mergers and acquisitions
- Hypothetical scenarios played out by our presenters
- Open forum for Q&A with our presenters
Proper diligence during mergers and acquisitions can keep you in compliance with the FCPA and save your organization thousands—if not millions—in penalties and disgorgement. Join us for this informative and interactive session on one of the most complex and troublesome areas of FCPA compliance.
