Seminar Will Review Provisions Of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 00:00

The Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL) is offering a CLE seminar titled The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act - An Overview: Why Quality Forensic Investigations Are So Important.

The program will take place on Tuesday, January 16 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the BAMSL headquarters, 720 Olive Boulevard, St. Louis.

In the last few years, efforts to clean up international trade have "gone global." Foreign governments, especially China, and international organizations like the United Nations, World Bank, World Trade Organization, European Union and African Union have adopted strong international anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws and standards. The result is that U.S. companies doing business internationally must now ensure corporate compliance with this law. Because of these changes in enforcement, it is now crucial that companies retain an advisor who can help guide them through the conventions of the FCPA.

The speaker is Jeffrey T. Harfenist, UHY Advisors, Inc.
