FCPA Enforcement Trends & Predictions (2017 Update)

1h 32m

Created on January 12, 2017



This seminar provides an overview of recent developments and trends in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) anti-bribery enforcement. Jay Holtmeier and Erin Sloane analyze noteworthy developments and highlight what these developments suggest about the priorities of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Looking at recent FCPA resolutions, Mr. Holtmeier and Ms. Sloane discuss recent enforcement trends such as the DOJ’s renewed focus on pursuing individuals, the rise in aggregate monetary penalties imposed on companies, a continued focus on third parties, and increased cross-border cooperation. The speakers also provide their observations regarding recent case law developments, notable settlements, and resolutions through the DOJ’s new voluntary disclosure pilot program. Ms. Sloane and Mr. Holtmeier close the discussion with predictions as to what these trends might mean for voluntary disclosures, investigations, and corporate compliance over the next few years.

  2. Understand what these trends suggest about DOJ and SEC priorities and enforcement strategies moving forward
  3. Understand what companies can do to bolster their compliance programs to mitigate anti-corruption risks and how companies can handle FCPA issues when they arise
