The Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA) has been a sleepy legal backwater for most of its history, with relatively few people having a need to understand its intricacies. That has changed now, not only due to the advent of the global economy but also due to several recent high-profile public controversies involving FARA. Many United States companies and public relations firms working with foreign governments, state-owned enterprises, and even multinational corporations are encountering issues related to FARA for the first time. Indications from the Justice Department are that enforcement efforts will increase moving forward. 
It is important now more than ever before for attorneys advising US companies and professional services firms to understand when and how their work with foreign entities of all types could trigger consequences under FARA. These are among the topics this timely and informative class will cover:

  • Key terms that define the scope of FARA
  • Important exemptions that apply to US entities working on behalf of certain foreign entities
  • Responding to inquiries and document requests from the Department of Justice’s FARA unit
  • Preparing and submitting FARA registration and disclosure forms
  • Establishing tailored compliance programs to help lobbying firms, public affairs firms, and political consultancies efficiently manage FARA’s compliance obligations
