Three recent major enforcement actions related to alleged domestic bribery activity, including a $200 million deferred prosecution agreement with a major utility, may signal a renewed focus by the Department of Justice into corruption corporate interests at the state and local levels in the U.S. While prosecuting corporations for foreign corruption has been a staple of the DOJ Criminal Division for many years, it has rarely prosecuted companies engaged in domestic corrupt practices.
This panel will bring together former DOJ domestic public corruption prosecutors along with seasoned compliance professionals to discuss these developments and how companies can manage the risks associated with doing business with federal, state and local governments in the United States.
Participants will learn:
- developments in DOJ’s renewed focus on corrupt conduct by businesses at the state and local level;
- strategies for mitigating compliance risks in connection with U.S. political activity; and
- potential legal impediments in DOJ’s prosecution of public corruption.
