FCPA Enforcement Update: Individuals in the Line of Fire

  • December 6, 2010

David Krakoff, James Parkinson, and Lauren Randell presented the Thomson Reuters webconference, "FCPA Enforcement Update: Individuals in the Line of Fire," on December 6, 2010.

As anti-corruption enforcement activity continues at the heightened pace set over the past few years, one enforcement priority has never been clearer: individuals will be prosecuted. In the United States, enforcement officials have made their view very clear that the strongest deterrent effect is achieved by indicting and convicting the individuals they view as responsible for FCPA violations. Recent enforcement activity underscores this message.

Three experienced FCPA defense lawyers from the Washington, D.C.-based law firm of BuckleySandler LLP provided an update on recent enforcement activities related to individuals. The program contained three segments:

  • Review of the enforcement activities related to individuals, including recent trials, sentences, indictments, extradition activities, and other collateral litigation.
  • Discussion of factors unique to the FCPA that complicate individual representations and defense, such as data privacy issues and local law.
  • Tips and insights for managing risks of personal liability, and how to react if your company is in an investigation.
