WASHINGTON – Nov. 15, 2016 – International law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is a Lead Sponsor of the American Conference Institute’s 33rd International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The event will take place Nov. 29 – Dec. 2, 2016, at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland.
The American Conference Institute hosts events in major cities around the world featuring the expertise of lawyers and other experts in various subjects including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Anti-Corruption.
Greenberg Traurig Washington, D.C. shareholder Kara Bombach will speak as a featured panelist during the breakout sessions on Day Two of the conference. The discussion session will be part of the Ethics Roundtable & Problem-Solving track and will focus on “How to Resolve New, Evolving Ethical Dilemmas Impacting Anti-Corruption Compliance and Investigations.”
During this session, Bombach and others will address the continued intensification of corruption and whistleblower litigation, and will discuss real-life ethical dilemmas that can arise when:
- Implementing risk mitigation strategies;
- Disclosing to government agencies and cooperating in an investigation;
- Managing a global anti-corruption compliance program;
- Helping to support sales and business development; and
- Trying to maximize cost-efficiency and profitability.
“We are excited to support this event in the nation’s capital as a Lead Sponsor, especially given the significant focus U.S. and foreign governments put on investigating and prosecuting bribery and corruption,” said Bombach, who is a member of the White Collar Defense & Special Investigations and Global Trade & Investment Practices. “This conference provides a unique opportunity for compliance professionals from around the world to exchange insights on anticorruption compliance best practices and enforcement trends.”
