Increasing globalization means more intense monitoring of how U.S. companies conduct business abroad. We assist clients in a wide variety of matters involving the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act, and similar laws.
Our anti-corruption team provides a full range of anti-corruption services, including compliance advice, transactional due diligence, investigations, and representation before enforcement authorities. Our compliance work includes advising on the design and implementation of effective compliance programs, performing risk assessments to focus limited compliance resources, assessing existing compliance procedures, reviewing proposed high-risk activity, and training key personnel.
For clients involved in or considering M&A or joint venture transactions with business partners in high-risk areas, we perform transactional due diligence and assist with anti-corruption program integration. We conduct internal investigations of corruption issues for clients in the United States and abroad. In addition, we defend companies and individuals during investigations or enforcement activity before the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and other regulators.
