Event: A Journey To The Dark Side of International Business (Washington, DC - May 4)

An event at George Washington University on May 4 will take a close look at a real-world story of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. 

FCPA Blog contributing editor Richard Bistrong's strange journey from the front-lines of international business, to cooperation with law enforcement, and incarceration will be the focus.

He'll keynote the event, followed by a discussion by business, legal, and compliance leaders who'll draw lessons from his experience, with a particular look at how to handle business opportunities in higher risk markets.

Panelist will include James Koukios from Morrison & Foerster. He spent six years at the DOJ and was a lead prosecutor in United States v. Esquenazi and United States v. Duperval.

Jonathan Drimmer is vice president and general counsel at Barrick Gold Corp. He previously served as deputy director in the DOJ's Office of Special Investigations.

Frances McLeod is co-founder and managing director of Forensic Risk Alliance.

The panel moderator will be Evelyn Suarez, founder of The Suarez Firm.

The program is called A Journey To The Dark Side of International Business and Steps To Protect Your Organization (more information is here).
