- Learn More
Our team has unsurpassed experience in counseling and defending U.S. and foreign companies and individuals in matters relating to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar anti-corruption laws. We are frequently contacted when a potential corruption issue arises, and are go-to counsel for investigations and enforcement proceedings before the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Multilateral Development Banks, including the World Bank. In addition, we advise clients considering transactions in high-risk markets or with business partners with high anti-corruption risks. We also counsel clients who are designing compliance programs and in conducting risk assessments.
Litigation partners Jessica Carey and Roberto Gonzalez have been selected to receive the “Law360 Distinguished Writing Award” at the 2017 Burton Awards. Jessica and Roberto were recognized for their February 22, 2017 National Law Journal article, “The Government’s Making AML Enforcement Personal.” The article addressed recent government initiatives that focus on holding individuals accountable for anti-money laundering violations, and the role a company’s general counsel plays in navigating this new environment. Litigation associate Anand Sithian assisted in the article’s preparation.
The Burton Awards, held in association with the Library of Congress and sponsored by Law360 and the American Bar Association, honor the finest accomplishments in law, including writing, legal reform, public service and public interest, regulatory innovations, and lifetime achievements in the profession. The awards ceremony will take place on May 22 at the Library of Congress.
