Manage Your Risk of Doing Business Abroad by Complying with the FCPA

On Thursday, October 22 from 8-10:30 a.m., the British American Business Council will host a breakfast seminar at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia to help members fully understand the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other anti-bribery and corruption laws that are vital when doing business abroad.

As more organizations conduct business globally, they must consider their obligation to comply with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar anti-bribery laws in other countries where they do business. At the same time, worldwide initiatives to combat corruption and bribery are gaining momentum, and companies face not only FCPA actions in the United States, but also the possibility of parallel or concurrent enforcement actions under similar laws or regulations in other jurisdictions. In addition to substantial fines and hefty legal costs, FCPA violations and other bribery and corruption breaches pose other serious consequences, including reputation risks and the loss of investor confidence.

With support from KPMG LLP and Pepper Hamilton LLP, the BABC has gathered top experts to share their insights on current global challenges and activities surrounding anti-bribery and corruption compliance.

Kate Hamman
US Department of Justice

Director, Philadelphia Regional Office
