Please join us for a discussion about “the most consequential anti-foreign-bribery law passed in almost 50 years”: the Foreign Extortion Prevention Act (FEPA). FEPA criminalizes, for the first time, bribe receiving by foreign government officials.

Hear from three former Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors – including
Tom Firestone, a key player in drafting the legislation, 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 – as they discuss the following questions:

  • What are the key provisions of FEPA?
  • How can companies use FEPA to protect themselves against bribe demands?
  • Can companies use FEPA to protect themselves in FCPA cases?
  • What does FEPA mean for foreign government officials and state-owned enterprises?
  • Are there potential political and diplomatic consequences of FEPA?
