The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. DOJ and SEC resources devoted to it remain at an all-time high. Recent FCPA and bribery enforcement actions demonstrate that no industry is immune from scrutiny and this past year has seen record settlements.  Beyond the FCPA, more countries and international organizations, are ramping up anti-corruption enforcement and adding to the complexity of legal compliance.
