Corporate Political Activity and Compliance: Developing an Effective Compliance Plan


Created on November 06, 2018




In the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election, more companies and individuals are becoming engaged in the political process. It is becoming increasingly difficult to expect your company's officers, directors, shareholders and employees to sit on the sidelines. Join Genova Burns LLC partner Rebecca Moll Freed, Esq., head of the Corporate Political Activity Law Group, for developing a strategy for Political Activity Compliance.

In-house counsel, corporate compliance officers, and governmental affairs agents are frequently involved in developing and implementing their company's compliance program as it relates to political contributions, pay-to-play laws, lobbying rules and gifts and entertainment. 

This program will focus on the pitfalls that in-house counsel, corporate compliance officers, and governmental affairs agents face when trying to develop and implement a company-wide corporate political activity compliance policy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine the laws and regulations governing the role of companies in the political process
  2. Identify the many pitfalls in which a single misstep can have significant consequences such as: loss of government contracting opportunities, fines and penalties, negative publicity and damage to the company's reputation
  3. Walk through the steps that are necessary for developing and implementing an effective and ethical compliance program
