YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND A LUNCHEON WORKSHOP ON "The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act: From Soup to Nuts" led by Scott Peeler, Partner, Chadbourne & Parke, LLP, New York, New York. This important and timely workshop will take place on Thursday, April 14, 2011, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. in the Scott Room at the Westin Georgetown hotel, 2350 M. Street, NW, Washington, D.C. Chadbourne & Parke is a long-time member of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC).

Mr. Peeler advises clients on all aspects of white-collar litigation, government investigations and compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act and other local and international anti-corruption laws. He frequently leads companies in the development and implementation of anti-corruption compliance programs tailored to meet relevant industry and legal standards. After the presentation there will be a question and answer session.

COMPLIANCE
The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practice Act ("FCPA") makes it a federal criminal offense for any U.S. person, foreign or domestic issuer or concern, or any foreign person while in the United States, to directly or indirectly offer or make a corrupt payment to any non-U.S. government official to obtain or retain a business advantage.

The FCPA, which is being actively enforced in every corner of the globe, also requires companies with securities registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to make and keep appropriate books and records and to maintain a system of adequate internal controls. The recently adopted UK Bribery Act (2010) provides similar anti-bribery restrictions for all companies incorporated in the UK or doing business in the UK (wherever they are incorporated) - and goes even further.

Under both the FCPA and Bribery Act, parent companies bear criminal and civil liability for the corrupt conduct of their subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, and agents that interact with governmental authorities and state-owned corporations in other countries, including Ukraine.

Therefore, foreign companies doing business in Ukraine must take extra measures to minimize their exposure to corrupt practices. Establishment and effective implementation of appropriate anti-corruption procedures and safeguards is no longer an option, but a necessity.

RSVP: You are invited for lunch to learn more about the FCPA and UK Bribery Act. There is no charge for the workshop.
