In the shadow of increasingly vigorous anti-corruption enforcement around the world, a number of countries have recently adopted various legislative approaches to addressing corruption, both domestic and international. The new approaches take cues from established laws, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act 2010, but also diverge from them in some important ways, with the French "Sapin II" legislation a case in point. This discussion by Chuck Durros and Jonathan Rusch -- both former Deputy Chiefs of the U.S. Department of Justice's Fraud Section, which handles FCPA enforcement and works closely with other countries' anti-corruption authorities -- will explore the key trends and developments with regard to anti-corruption conventions and laws around the world. The speakers will address factors likely to affect the continued adoption and enforcement of new bribery-related offenses and the increasing willingness to conclude deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs) and to pursue administrative remedies for corruption, as well as the greater focus to corporate compliance programs.
