In recent years, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have placed an increased emphasis on compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by U.S. and foreign registered companies.
We provide counseling, investigative and litigation defense services to issuers and domestic concerns with regard to both DOJ and SEC investigations. We advise and defend clients in both civil and criminal matters involving the FCPA as well as other foreign based criminal matters.
Our FCPA team represents domestic and international companies and their executives regarding compliance with, and enforcement of, the FCPA. We have counseled on corporate FCPA compliance generally and on specific issues such as direct and indirect payments to foreign officials, use of promotional activities and commissions given or paid to potential foreign government officials, and other recordkeeping requirements.
