Your business can grow if you find the right in-country managers, partners and third-party agents to represent your interests. You need due diligence support from an expert. FAIS’ principal investigator, Richie Taffet, has more than 25 years of due diligence experience, more than decade of which includes international investigations. He is also the principal FCPA compliance investigator for the largest international screening company in the world; expert in audit and compliance protocols in Japan, Singapore, India, China, the Philippines, Europe and Australia.
The U.S. Dept. of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are pursuing cases under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act at an unprecedented pace and with an unprecedented range of targets: an $88 million DOJ fine on a Japanese trading firm in March 2014; a $3.4 million settlement with the SEC by a Tampa, Fla., engineering and construction firm in January 2015. Every business with foreign dealings needs to be alert.
