Recent trends demonstrate that virtually every industry is vulnerable to potential liability under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and global Anti-Bribery Conventions. Moreover, regulators are increasingly conducting both industry-wide reviews and global investigations of targeted organizations. The recent indictments of twenty-two individuals in the military equipment industry demonstrate that, regardless of size, any company involved in international commerce is now a potential target.

In a highly dynamic and interactive workshop, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP will introduce attendees to a comprehensive approach to help prevent, detect and remediate violations of the FCPA and the Anti-Bribery Conventions. Working though scenario-based exercises, participants will manage real world FCPA challenges, examining both prevention and remediation, and will experience first-hand the complexities of dealing with corruption risks. Our experts will share with attendees their broad experience and insights into how organizations not only can prevent violations, but also respond to a violation effectively if one occurs.

The seminar is titled, "Preventing and Managing Corruption: Good Business Practice = Good Business." This is a highly interactive workshop and will be limited to 20-30 participants. The seminars will be co-hosted by Control Risks, an international investigation firm. The Shanghai seminar will be held on April 13 at the Royal Meridien Shanghai from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The Los Angeles seminar is tentatively scheduled for May 12. For more information, please contact Melissa Eaves at
