Anti-bribery and corruption laws are being more aggressively enforced in the U.S., Canada and throughout the world. Canadian corporations doing business outside of Canada are more at risk than ever when doing business in foreign jurisdictions.

Despite having control systems in place, your organization may be faced with possible bribery and corruption investigations and criminal charges. This breakfast session will provide a unique legal and forensic accounting perspective on how to respond to the challenges of conducting bribery and corruption investigations that often involve significant cross-border elements.    

Topics covered will include:

  • Overview of the FCPA/CFPOA, understanding the legislation and what it means for your organization, including a walk-through of the basic requirements of the Canadian CFPOA when doing business abroad, delivered by Norm Keith of Fasken Martineau
  • Overview of the rules, jurisdiction and enforcement of the FCPA by the Department of Justice, delivered by Joshua Roth , a U.S. Attorney
  • Considerations when putting together your investigation team
  • Drafting the work plan - where and how to focus your investigation
  • Securing documents and other evidentiary issues - navigating the international rules around access to information
  • Managing side effects - responding to the other pressures caused by an investigation, delivered by Peter Armstrong and Becky Seidler of KPMG
  • Moving forward - key considerations in enhancing your anti-bribery and corruption program
