Join us on Wednesday, Feb. 24, as we launch our new thought leadership forum, the RSM Litigation Support Lunch and Learn series. To kick off the event, our presenter will lead a discussion on the importance of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) due diligence during a merger or acquisition.
With the number of reported mergers and acquisition (M&A) deals worldwide increasing from $1.87 trillion in 2013 to $2.94 trillion in 2014, global M&A activity is certainly on the rise. As a result, more measures must be put in place in order to adjust to this new climate and to the implications, such as potential FCPA risks that could arise.
In this informative event, discussion will include:
FCPA overview and global M&A activity
The need for FCPA due diligence in modern, cross-border deals
Recent FCPA enforcement cases against buyers
The value of an FCPA assessment for sellers
Identifying the right due diligence investigation for the deal
The basics of a high-level FCPA review
