Anticorruption Developments Under the Biden Administration

The Biden administration’s commitment to fighting anticorruption has been loud and clear. On June 3, 2021, the White House issued a memorandum that identified “countering corruption as a core United States national security interest.” The memo directs policy leaders to conduct an interagency review process and develop a strategy that would allow the Biden administration to use the full arsenal of its enforcement, financial, foreign policy, and intelligence tools to prevent and combat corruption and to make it increasingly difficult for corrupt actors to shield their activities.

- How, if at all, is the administration’s aggressive stance on corruption making an impact on the nature, frequency and scope of FCPA enforcement activity?
- What is the CFTC’s role in this new enforcement landscape?
- What are current best practices around compliance, self-reporting and managing internal and government investigations into possible FCPA violations during the second year of a global pandemic, and how has the pandemic affected discovery of FCPA misconduct through whistleblowing and self-reporting?

Join a distinguished panel of experts for a discussion on recent developments in FCPA enforcement and compliance.
