The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act:  What the Energy Sector Needs to Know in 2010

8:00 - 8:30 am - Registration and Breakfast 
8:30 - 9:30 am - Program
Complimentary breakfast will be provided.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have dramatically increased the number of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations – both criminal and civil – of multinational corporations and their executives. These agencies are increasingly looking to hold companies liable for not having FCPA compliance programs that meet their standards. Under the enforcement spotlight are multinational companies that do business in "red flag" regions, especially where business with sub-contractors and other third parties is commonplace, and at companies that have export control, financial controls or reporting issues.

The importance to energy sector companies of implementing a rigorous compliance program that withstands regular auditing and testing cannot be overstated.

Please join us for a discussion with former SEC and DOJ lawyers who will share their experiences and legal and practical assessments about what energy industry multinational companies can expect from enhanced FCPA enforcement, and what, specifically, they need to know to navigate this complex, international web of laws and regulations.
