On Tuesday January 30, we hope you will join a seasoned team of former Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors for what will certainly be a robust a discussion on “the most consequential anti-foreign-bribery law passed in almost 50 years”: the Foreign Extortion Prevention Act (FEPA). Passed as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), FEPA allows the DOJ to prosecute foreign officials who demand or accept a bribe from a U.S. citizen or company. For any entity doing business abroad, understanding FEPA is critical.
Tom Firestone, a key player in drafting the legislation, will be joined by Kathleen McGovern, former senior deputy chief of the Fraud Section supervising FCPA Unit and former FCPA prosecutor, and Jerrob Duffy, former chief of the DOJ Fraud Section’s Litigation Unit and senior FCPA prosecutor – for a lively and informative discussion.
