The World’s Policeman? The Global Reach of U.S. Criminal Law
Stéphane de Navacelle intervenes at an ABA Section of International Law on the global reach of US criminal law alongside with David P. Burns (Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP), Melissa R. Ginsberge (Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP), Joshua M. Toman (Charlotte School of Law). Just because a person resides and acts overseas does not mean he or she is immune from prosecution in the United States. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, antitrust laws, and wire fraud laws all have important implications for both businesses and individuals who act overseas. The Panel provides key insights concerning recent developments in the U.S. laws that apply to foreign conduct and what both U.S. and international lawyers need to know to effectively represent their clients.
