Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

The lawyers at our firm are experienced in handling government inquiries, investigations, and enforcement actions for clients arising from alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). We routinely counsel individuals, U.S. companies and their foreign subsidiaries, and non-U.S. companies in government investigations involving allegations of corruption and bribery under the FCPA, the UK anti-bribery statute, anti-money laundering laws, and the Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower provisions.

We are industry leaders in expertly and efficiently conducting internal investigations for companies with respect to potential FCPA violations and representing boards, audit committees, and senior management in such investigations. We advise companies and senior officers on the administration of consent decrees, monitorships, and other post-settlement agreements, as well as local law issues, disciplinary and remedial measures, and voluntary disclosure to federal authorities, including the Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission. We also advise clients on FCPA compliance programs and due diligence issues.

We have handled FCPA-related investigations throughout the world including the U.K., Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Central and South America. The roster of clients for which we have conducted investigations in this area includes various Fortune 500 companies and global financial institutions in numerous industries, including telecommunications, manufacturing, financial services, advertising, and pharmaceuticals.
