Dickinson Wright Attorney Michael L. Volkov Presents Webinar on "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a Compliance Roadmap"

7/8/2010
Dickinson Wright PLLC attorney Michael L. Volkov will be hosting a Webinar on August 5, 2010 on compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"). Mr. Volkov recently authored a treatise entitled, "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a Compliance Roadmap." Mr. Volkov is a member in Dickinson Wright's Washington, D.C. office, where he focuses on trial practice, white collar defense and complex internal investigations. During the August 5 Webinar, Mr. Volkov will discuss recent trends in FCPA enforcement. In recent years, the US Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission have aggressively enforced the FCPA against foreign bribery, and secured large criminal fines against multinational corporations and long prison sentences against corporate officers for FCPA violations. Mr. Volkov will review recent enforcement actions, discuss red flags for potential violations and outlines basic due diligence requirements for dealing with third parties. In addition, this Webinar will provide best practices for implementing an effective FCPA compliance program.

Mr. Volkov's FCPA paper provides key insights into the FCPA and was commissioned by Miami-based WorldCompliance, the world�s leading Open Source Intelligence Company, and discusses the risks of non-compliance with the FCPA. For reference, half of the indictments meted out since the FCPA�s inception in 1977 have occurred in the past three years, with fines exceeding two billion dollars. In April, the UK enacted their version of the Act, called The UK Bribery Bill. This is another indication of the direction countries are taking towards combating corruption.
