The Dow Jones Global Compliance Symposium Conference is next Tuesday and Wednesday in Washington D.C. (see here for program details). I am pleased to be joining Michael Mukasey (former U.S. Attorney General and currently at Debevoise & Plimpton – see here) and Mark Mendelsohn (former DOJ FCPA unit chief and currently at Paul Weiss – see here) in the concluding panel of the conference titled “The FCPA: What Can & Should Be Done To It?” moderated by Dionne Searcey of the Wall Street Journal.
The panel should be a lively event. I testified at the November 2010 Senate FCPA hearing (see here for my prepared statement) and recently authored “Revisiting a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Compliance Defense” (see here); Mukasey testified, on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, at the June 2011 House FCPA hearing (see here for his prepared statement); and Mendelsohn is described on his firm’s website “as the architect and key enforcement official of DOJ’s modern Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement program.”
Several other panels at the Dow Jones Global Compliance Symposium will also focus on the FCPA and U.K. Bribery Act, and/or touch upon bribery and corruption issues in Africa, Russia, and China.
