In-House

In recent years the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act -- the U.S. law that prohibits the bribery of foreign public officials -- has been a major enforcement priority of the U.S. Department of Justice. Reports indicate that there are currently dozens of active government investigations and there have been several criminal settlements exceeding $100 million.The number of individual criminal prosecutions has also risen.

In addition, the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission, which enforces civil aspects of the FCPA related to issuersof securities in the U.S., increased its enforcement efforts. Finally, a number of other countries have developed -- and are investigating and enforcing -- potential allegations of their own, local anti-corruption laws so companies and individuals may find themselves the subject of overlapping investigations.

This seminar will cover four important topics relevant to the FCPA:

1) Background and history of the statute

2) Elements of a compliance program

3) Lessons learned from recent enforcement actions

4) Multijurisdictional aspects of investigations and enforcement

The instructors are all experienced, "boots on the ground" practitioners who have conducted FCPA investigations in numerous locales. This program should be of interest to any company engaging in foreign operations.

ANDREW D. IRWIN, Partner, Jenner & Block
Mr. Irwin is a member of both the Government Contracts and the Government
Controversies and Public Policy Litigation Practices. With more than 20 years of
experience, Mr. Irwin focuses his practice at the intersection of government
procurement and international regulatory law, concentrating primarily on
corporate investigations and compliance counseling. His unique background
includes experience on export controls, economic sanctions and the Foreign
Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Mr. Irwin has a wide-ranging export control practice. He has handled
investigations and voluntary disclosures for companies in a range of industries,
including aerospace and defense and high-tech. Much of his work has involved
the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), but he has also managed
substantial Export Administration Regulations (EAR) enforcement matters. He
also has counseled clients regarding all major economic sanctions regimes
administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), conducted a
number of FCPA investigations and reviews around the world, and has advised
clients on Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
issues.
Mr. Irwin has handled significant False Claims Act and ethics/compliance
matters, including those with related international regulatory concerns. While inhouse
early in his career, he supervised major protests and handled issues
relating to work with the Department of Defense, Department of Energy and the
United States Agency for International Development.
A prolific contributor to government contracts publications, Mr. Irwin’s writing
often focuses on overlapping issues such as export controls and anti-corruption.
He is a member of the advisory board for Thomson Reuters’ Government
Contractor and the conceiver and co-editor of Thomson Reuters’ ITAR
Handbook. He speaks at conferences and events worldwide. His engagements
have included, among others, speaking on international compliance issues at
Thomson Reuters’ “Government Contracts Year in Review,” the largest national
government contracts legal conference. He conceived and led a year-long
series of webcasts hosted by Federal Publications Seminars with foreign law
firms regarding contracting in their countries.
