ACI’s 38th International Conference on the FCPA

Freshfields Partner Eric Bruce will be participating in the International Risk Series at the 38th International Conference on the FCPA.

Time: 9:45am ET

Location: Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, Washington DC

Widely regarded as the premier, flagship anti-corruption conference, this four day event will continue its longstanding track record of gathering key government officials, in-house legal and compliance professionals, and outside counsel to discuss a host of developments and unprecedented challenges.

Eric will be speaking on the panel, “Part I: The Biden Administration’s National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM): Predictions of the Global Enforcement Aftermath and Evolving Risk Landscape,” which will explore President Biden’s recent directive establishing the fight against corruption as a core U.S. national security interest. Topics of discussion will include:

  • What, if any, new anti-corruption legislation will likely be proposed as part of the initiative?

  • Will increased coordination and information-sharing between US law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as well as international partners, increase the effectiveness of FCPA enforcement?

    • What should companies be doing now as a result?

  • What should the role of the private sector be to advance this initiative?

  • Will establishing a “beneficial ownership” registry and increasing scrutiny of offshore trusts increase transparency?
