Open Door Speaker Series: Is Your Client Doing Business Outside the U.S.? Here’s What You Must Know About the Anti-Bribery Rules Under the FCPA

Thursday, March 30, 2017
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm  |  RWU Law | Bristol Campus | Bay View Room




Presented by the OPEN DOOR Speaker Series

We welcome

Casey Charkowick '16, Staff Attorney, Corporate Compliance, Textron, Inc. 
Rocco Sica, Assistant General Counsel, Textron, Inc.
David Werbel, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, IGT

Compliance with the FCPA is critical for all U.S. individuals and companies doing business outside the U.S., but compliance with its regulations is complex, ever-evolving and costly. The FCPA’s anti-bribery provisions make it a crime for any U.S. individual, business entity or employee of a U.S. business entity to offer or provide, directly or through a third party, anything of value to a foreign government official with corrupt intent to influence an award or continuation of business or to gain an unfair advantage.  For today’s global businesses, bribes are pervasive, and the chances of encountering corruption are high.  The fines imposed by the DOJ and SEC for violations can be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.   As a result, the demand for lawyers as compliance specialists is surging to help companies build programs and navigate these laws.

Come hear from FCPA Compliance lawyers at IGT, the lottery and gaming powerhouse, and Textron, the aircraft and defense titan, about what the FCPA means to their businesses and how they work to control the risks of these international activities.  Panel followed by light refreshments in the Bay View Room.
