Despite the worldwide economic slowdown, multi-jurisdictional enforcement of antitrust and anti-corruption laws continues to grow dramatically.  This program will review recent investigations by enforcement authorities around the world, including the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and other agencies.  Our panel will explain the substantive legal issues and potential sanctions that companies face in the United States and abroad for antitrust, securities, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and False Claims Act violations.  We will provide guidelines for focused and rigorous compliance training, and offer tips on how to mitigate risk and penalties should an investigation ensue.
