Please join Morgan Lewis for a one-hour webinar discussing the long-awaited guide to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act's (FCPA's) criminal and civil enforcement provisions.

  • Understanding how enforcement authorities assess corporate civil and criminal liability in determining the type of enforcement action to pursue if misconduct does occur
  • Analysis of issues raised in resolving potential enforcement actions, including voluntary disclosure and remediation, and discussion of the historical declinations as reported in the guide
