This webinar is meant to tie Part 1 and Part 2, into real-world examples of how proper compliance programs should be designed and in-depth discussions on how to best implement such programs within your company.
This webinar will cover:
- “Lessons learned” and practical insights for developing an effective corporate compliance program, including what companies can do to implement, evaluate, customize, and improve their compliance programs. Topics will include how General Counsels, Chief Compliance Officers, and outside counsel can design and implement compliance programs and internal controls to minimize risks, meet legal obligations, satisfy various stakeholders, as well as meet and exceed DOJ expectations for effective corporate compliance programs. Panelists will offer their views on when and how compliance programs can weigh in favor or against criminal charges or other enforcement actions
- DOJ’s new 2020 Guidance, “Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs” and how it bears upon subject matters, such as the FCPA, OFAC, the False Claims Act, among others
- Establishing a good corporate governance program to address third party risks, vetting of domestic and overseas partners, anti-corruption controls, and reducing threats of non-compliance in order to address the DOJ’s recommended guidelines
There will be a Q&A session directly following the conclusion of the presentation.
