Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-bribery laws
Our International and Investigations, White Collar Defense teams counsel corporations doing business abroad to ensure they remain compliant with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other anti-bribery laws. Our work includes designing and updating anticorruption compliance programs and controls (including contracts with overseas agents), conducting risk assessments, and investigating potential concerns and mitigating issues that may arise. When necessary, we interface with regulators and defend corporations and individuals with reference to FCPA and commercial bribery investigations and prosecutions. We also conduct merger and acquisition due diligence for potential issues involving foreign and commercial bribery and to assess internal accounting controls.
