Litigation partner Mark Mendelsohn spoke at the American Conference Institute’s 38th International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. On November 30, Mark spoke on a panel on “Perspectives on SEC Reporting Requirements” as part of the conference’s ESG Think Tank. The session examined grey areas in ESG reporting, including evolving state, federal and global disclosure requirements. On December 1, Mark spoke on a panel on “The Biden Administration’s National Security Study Memorandum (NSSM): Predictions on the Global Enforcement Aftermath and Evolving Risk Landscape.” The session explored President Biden’s recent directive establishing the fight against corruption as a core U.S. national security interest, including what, if any new anti-corruption legislation will likely be proposed; whether increased coordination and information-sharing between US law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as well as international partners, will increase the effectiveness of FCPA enforcement; and related topics.
