ACC roundtable with DOJ and SEC regarding FCPA compliance

On May 24th, the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission will be conducting an ACC-only roundtable regarding FCPA compliance and enforcement issues.  As you may know, the DOJ and the SEC plan to issue joint guidance regarding FCPA issues later this year.  This roundtable represents a great opportunity to request clarifications on issues that substantially burden the in-house bar.  Some areas ripe for clarity are ambiguous statutory terms in the Act itself, the role of compliance systems in charging decisions and the impact of duplicate prosecutions, both domestically and internationally.  But, of course, there are many more.

Which is why we’d like you at the roundtable.  It will be conducted the afternoon and evening of May 24th in Washington, D.C.  Space IS limited and we’ll be sifting through candidates to ensure geographical and industry diversity with our primary deciding consideration being significant expertise in FCPA issues.

If you are interested in attending, please email JD White at no later than Friday, May 4th.
