Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
Overview:Over the past 5 years, the DOJ and the SEC have investigated a large number of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act as a result of the government’s intense campaign to wipe out corruption not only in the U.S. but also in countries where U.S. companies maintain branch offices.
