    As threats of bribery and corrupt practices rise globally, emerging developments continue to have a major effect on the current legislation landscape. In the US, on July 3, 2020, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released the second edition of its resource guide for the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Notable updates and corrections included compliance initiatives and clarifications on its current provisions and policies. Furthermore, on August 14, 2020, the DOJ issued its first FCPA advisory opinion that sought to address issues on compliance with anti-bribery provisions. In France, the Parquet National Financier (PNF) continue to bring significant corruption enforcement proceedings under the new Sapin II legislation. In the UK, the primary anti-corruption enforcement authority, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) continues to bring significant enforcement proceedings against companies under the Bribery Act. These proceedings have resulted in sizeable settlements under the UK’s sentencing framework. Finally, in the Airbus global settlement on 31 January 2020, we saw how DOJ, SFO and PNF actively worked together to agree a multi-billion settlement. Thus, lawyers and practitioners must proactively devise effective strategies to ensure compliance.

    Listen as anti-bribery and corruption law experts Michael Huneke (Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP) and Matthew Cowie (Dechert LLP) provide the audience with the latest updates and notable cases in anti-bribery and corruption legislation. Speakers, among other things, will offer helpful insights in carefully managing legal issues in light of the new regulations and enforcements.
