2021 Year in Review: Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

February 1, 2022 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM


The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) impacts every U.S. company that conducts business globally. Investigations, prosecution and punishment under the FCPA is common, with more than $11 billion in fines imposed over the past decade. In 2021, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing disruption of business and government activities seemed to reduce the total number of enforcement actions, there were other indicators to suggest that U.S. regulators remain committed to and focused on aggressive FCPA enforcement against companies, as well as individuals, that will likely lead to increased enforcement action in 2022. In this webinar, the panelists will discuss current enforcement trends and developments, notable judicial challenges and private actions arising out of past FCPA enforcement matters, as well as what companies, boards of directors, and individual managers and executives can expect and plan for in 2022. The panelists also will offer practical suggestions for the implementation of effective corporate anti-bribery and anti-corruption programs focused on ethical and compliant behavior and culture.
