This hour-long webinar is the first in a two-part series covering bribery and sanctions issues, with a focus on India. The webinar is jointly presented by Willkie and Trilegal. In Part I, we will cover three topics related to bribery and sanctions. The first topic covered is an overview of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and how it has been enforced against businesses outside of the US. This part of the webinar will also look at FCPA enforcement trends in 2019, particularly enforcement actions related to India. The second topic is an introduction to the US sanctions framework administered by the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and the importance of sanctions for businesses outside the US. This part of the webinar will also include a brief look at OFAC enforcement trends in 2019. The third topic covered in the webinar will be the Indian laws and regulations relating to financial crime, with a particular focus on the Indian Prevention of Corruption Act, and related issues such as the application of the attorney client privilege in India.
