Anti-Corruption & Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
- 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 partner Mark Mendelsohn will participate in a panel discussion at the University of Virginia School of Law’s “30th Annual Sokol Colloquium on Private International Law.” The event will be held on the 40th anniversary of the adoption of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Mark’s panel is titled “The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act at Forty” and will discuss the history and impact of enforcement on the development of compliance, how FCPA compliance is understood and implemented at the company level, and the impact of compliance on corporate transactions, especially M&A. The conference will take place on November 10 at the University of Virginia School of Law in Charlottesville, Virginia.
