The recent explosion in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") enforcement has made headlines of late, with three articles in the Wall Street Journal alone during the week of April 12th. Numerous multi-million dollar settlements and indictments of individuals demonstrate that no company with any international presence is beyond the reach of the statute.

We have discussed the FCPA on a number of occasions in our blog. On May 12, 2010 in Los Angeles, Sheppard Mullin, along with Control Risks, will introduce attendees to a comprehensive approach to FCPA compliance and the management of a corruption crisis, in a dynamic and interactive workshop.

Click here (make sure to then click "play") to listen to an interview given by Sheppard Mullin partner Bethany Hengsbach, discussing FCPA enforcement in China and the initial installment of the seminar, which was enthusiastically received by the audience in Shanghai on April 13th.
