"An Insider’s View of the U.S. Justice Department: What’s New in Antitrust, FCPA, and IP Enforcement."



Dear AMCHAM Members,?

With the rise of technology in a shrinking world, the U.S. Justice Department’s (DOJ) investigations and prosecutions have increasingly taken a global approach. And, due to the dynamic Asian economy and the rapid growth of U.S. participation in business and industry in Asia, companies in Korea, in particular, will benefit from learning about the Obama Administration’s and DOJ’s priorities and latest developments in three “hot” areas: antitrust, anti-corruption (e.g., FCPA), and intellectual property (IP) misappropriation.

The presentation, from our distinguished guest who served as the Department’s then-highest-ranking Korean-American official, will cover the following issues:

- Recent changes in DOJ leadership;
- Antitrust enforcement trends of interest to companies in Korea;
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement trends of interest to companies in Korea;
- The Administration’s and DOJ’s IP enforcement trends, including recent efforts to combat trade secret theft.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the seminar!

Best regards,
