The ongoing worldwide financial crisis is generating new and unexpected challenges for American companies who must comply with the federal Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). As foreign governments intervene deeply into private markets, and such entities as “sovereign wealth funds” inject their resources into ailing companies, more business deals will involve more contact with potential “foreign officials” and thus trigger FCPA requirements and federal agency scrutiny. Our speakers will discuss how responses to the financial crisis may create new FCPA responsibilities, how federal agencies are likely to approach such situations, and how the incoming Obama Administration’s Justice Department and SEC will approach such new issues.
