FLI Principal, Mr. Orlando Casares, completed FLI NET Compliance Training with FLI NET Chinese partners - Llinks Law Offices.
Due to FLI US clients (majority listed in NYSE or London) looking to FLI for expertise in Anti-Corruption Compliance, FLI - together with a number of large FLI NET clients - developed a comprehensive compliance certification training program designed for our FLI NET Partners and FLI has been implementing throughout our Network over the past couple of years. Considering that in 2014 alone DOJ prosecuted the highest number of FCPA violators (both blue chip companies and individuals) with a record amount of fines (over $ 1.6 billion), not to mention this years' campaign against FIFA, corruption is a topic in every legal department's mind.
This full day certification program covers US FCPA, UK Anti-Bribery, OECD, EU Anti-Money Laundering, and local regulations and is intended to raise FLI NET local teams' awareness and importance to a new level. Once the firm is certified, this information is provided to FLI Board and in turn the Board informs FLI NET listed clients so that they will know they can count on FLI NET partners' skills on the subject.
Thanks to the efforts of Mr. David Yu (FLI's main relationship partner), Llinks Law Office's team attended this important training with Orlando Casares in full force and included good number of the Firm's Partners as well as a number of associates.
FLI's Certification is something very much appreciated by not only US and UK multinational listed companies with strict compliance requirements, but all clients wanting to transact business in certain parts of the world and are concerned about potential problems with the local authorities.
