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.

Litigation counsel Justin Lerer co-authored an article in the March 20 issue of the Anti-Corruption Report. The article, “The Developing Anti-Corruption Battle Between the United States and China,” discusses the ongoing U.S.-China trade war and the U.S. Department of Justice’s announcement late last year that it would specifically target Chinese companies for aggressive enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The publication is a database of articles that contain up-to-date practical guidance on anti-corruption compliance strategies and best business practices to assist outside and in-house counsel and compliance professionals. Litigation associate Juan Gascon assisted in the preparation of this article.
