ACI's 12th Houston Forum on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

Tuesday, January 23 - Wednesday, January 24, 2018 | Houston, TX

On January 24, 2018 V&E partner, Jeff Johnston, will present on the "Repeat Offenders: How to Mitigate the Risk of Recidivism with FCPA Compliance" panel at the American Conference Institute’s (ACI) 12th Houston Forum on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Alongside two knowledgeable practitioners, Jeff’s panel will address:

  • Discussion on how the DOJ and SEC view and assess a repeat FCPA breach
  • Best practice advice from those who have been put “through the ringer” more than once: What has changed and how to move forward
  • How to avoid a Unaoil-like situation that may put your company at risk of a repeat offense
  • A second wave of DPAs and FCPA settlements: How recent repeat enforcement action has differed from past practices on behalf of the SEC and DOJ
  • Whether regulators are less inclined to consider a declination for repeat offenders 
  • A deep dive into whether the SEC and DOJ are moving from the typical joint and/or parallel investigation and enforcement model to separate ones
  • Will the DOJ and SEC reassess their first enforcement action and look for potential oversights? If so, will they be willing to publicly acknowledge the same and learn from them?
  • How companies can internally handle an investigation the second time around: How to reevaluate their internal compliance processes and address weaknesses insufficiently addressed the first time around, and whether enforcers can be expected to take into account “lessons learnt”

This flagship conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to benchmark what it takes in today’s fragile, risk-prone global economic environment to run a successful business that is backed by a strong FCPA-compliant program.
