The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Now Has a Nastier Cousin: Why The UK Bribery Act of 2010 Matters To You, and What You Need To Know About It and the FCPA

02 March 20118:30 AM - 10:00 AM (PST) Menlo Park

American companies, especially those in the Silicon Valley, have seen and heard a lot about the FCPA. But now there's more. A new UK Bribery Act, due to come into force this year, radically overhauls the UK's corruption legislation. Not only does it create tough new criminal offenses that are in many ways more stringent than the FCPA — such as including commercial bribery as well as bribery of public officials — but it creates strict liability for any corporation that does business in the UK for the worldwide actions of its agents, in addition to imposing personal liability on management. Even a fully compliant FCPA program may not meet new Bribery Act standards. Our panel of UK, US and China-based counsel will discuss the how the Bribery Act is likely to be interpreted, how enforcement of it will interrelate with the FCPA, and how companies should best comply with the Bribery Act and the FCPA when doing business in difficult jurisdictions.

This program is pending approval for CLE credit in California and New York. For all other jurisdictions, pending certification, attendees will receive a Uniform Certificate of Attendance. This program is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced lawyers.
