Competition for opportunities in previously closed or underdeveloped markets presents ethical challenges that test the business practices and compliance regimes of modern global enterprises and their employees, agents and affiliates. To successfully manage these challenges, in an environment where robust enforcement action and prosecutions are ongoing and increasing, companies need to understand how regulators view and interpret various acts and actors to ensure they stay abreast of, adjust to and assimilate the latest developments and regulatory intelligence.

This Course will identify some of the scenarios companies have encountered in foreign markets that have led to investigations, enforcement action and criminal prosecutions for violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other international laws, and offer lessons for identifying and mitigating similar risks. It will also highlight cases that have helped shape perceptions about the scope of FCPA enforcement, and identify efforts being taken by other governments and global regulators to help stem improper payments in pursuit of a more level playing field. It will also outline the case for cooperation and the benefits that can result from working with regulators to expose wrongdoing, as well as the downside of non-cooperation.
