THE LAST ATLANTA NETWORKING EVENT
7th October - Foreign Corrupt Practices Act-Diagnosing Problems in the Real World – Webinar
Right now, hundreds of companies are under investigation by the Department of Justice and the Securities & Exchange Commission for possible FCPA violations. Millions of dollars of fines and clawbacks are being assessed. Companies are losing hundreds of millions in legal fees, lost sales, and market value. Executives are being sent to jail. And the government is getting more aggressive by the day.
This program, presented by BAJ Associates and Birchtree Global, provides a step-by-step process for identifying your real-world, ongoing FCPA violations through a forensic review of contracts, vendors, suppliers, facilitation payments, chain of control, and expense accounts. Detailed checklists are provided to review potentially dangerous violations and red flags, drawn from recent case histories that indicate the areas that Federal investigators are most likely to examine. Upon completion of this program, participants will have a ½-hour private review of their results with Bruce Alan Johnson and his team. The program includes a detailed workbook of the FCPA, a review of cases and issues, a diagnostic template for your firm to use, and suggestions for becoming more compliant-quickly.
