The Five Essential Elements of a Corporate Compliance Program Part I


Next Tuesday morning, at the University Club of Chicago, Stephen Martin and I will co-present at a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) event hosted by Kreller. If you are in or near Chicago I hope that you can join us. The title of our presentation is “Anti-Corruption/FCPA Developments & Best Practices” and we will focus on a concept that Stephen and his partners at the law firm of Baker & McKenzie have developed which are five essential elements of a corporate compliance program. Over the next two posts, I will sketch out what Stephen and I will be presenting. In today’s post I will present the background to the development of the five essential elements and in Part II, I will go through the remaining elements.
