Join the key stakeholders in the world of FARA – law enforcement agencies, legal practitioners, PR and lobby firms – to discuss the real-life challenges posed by this statute and how best to proceed given surprising, new legal, compliance, political and PR risk factors.

We are excited to announce the inaugural Forum on FARA in Washington, DC this fall!

Now more than ever, FARA enforcement is intensifying-with law firms, lobby shops, PR firms and individuals confronting unprecedented prosecution risks. The U.S. Department of Justice has said that FARA enforcement is one of its newest priorities. In addition to criminal action, many anticipate that civil enforcement will become another new reality to flag now.

While the Foreign Agents Registration Act has been in effect since 1938, there are many grey areas (including the application of key exemptions, which may be narrower in scope than anticipated). Join the key stakeholders in the world of FARA –law enforcement agencies, legal practitioners, PR and lobby firms-to discuss the real-life challenges posed by this statute and how best to proceed given surprising, new legal, compliance, political and PR risk factors.

In addition to a worthwhile networking opportunity, the panel discussions will focus on how to tackle the most pressing issues affecting your work, including:

  • The most common misunderstandings about the Foreign Agents Registration Act: Revisiting who needs to register, the type of information to disclose and where to file
  • FARA Reform: Status and impact of pending bills in Congress to reform FARA
  • Clarifying the lengths and limits of the LDA and commercial exemptions
  • The unwritten lessons from the Mueller investigation

…and much more!
