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?
