PLI's The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and International Anti-Corruption Developments 2016
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. DOJ and SEC resources devoted to investigating violations and enforcing the law remain at an all-time high. Recent FCPA and bribery enforcement actions demonstrate that no industry is immune from scrutiny.
