Anti-Bribery and Corruption: A Guide for Compliance Officers
Date: Thursday, February 08, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM EST | 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT
As corruption becomes an ever-growing global issue that is intrinsically tied to the moving of money and shady international transactions, it is not surprising that anti-money laundering (AML) laws, in conjunction with anti-bribery laws, are fast becoming the go-to method for effectively tackling corrupt practices around the world.
There are now many examples of AML initiatives whose aim is to, either directly or indirectly, combat corruption. It is undeniable that allowing corrupt practices to take place can gravely threaten the protection of human rights and these initiatives show the important part that AML and anti-corruption laws can play in attempting to stop such practices dead in their tracks.
This webinar will provide a practical approach to dealing with the varying anti-corruption laws around the world as well as the risks involved in carrying out international transactions and how to avoid liability in today’s financial minefield.
What you will learn:
- An overview of FCPA – DOJ guidelines and individual liability

- ABCs of transactional due diligence, and lessons for private equity
- ABCs of joint ventures
- Risk involved with political and charitable contributions – connection with fraud
- The Odebrecht Effect on Banks – how was all that money moved?
