FCPA Compliance

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 against innumerable targets, for example:


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 must be alert.


How strong is your FCPA compliance program? Strong enough to withstand scrutiny by an expert federal investigator? The best companies have adopted programs in keeping with the DOJ-SEC FCPA Resource Guide, including due diligence on third-party agents, vendor reviews, internal audits, and escalation procedures.
