Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

Compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a critical business issue for international companies with operations in the United States. Government investigations and enforcement actions resulting from alleged violations of the FCPA can be a financial liability and place an unwelcome public spotlight on a company’s management. Goodwin Procter’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act team, which includes a number of former federal prosecutors, has extensive experience investigating and defending against FCPA allegations.

Our experience includes representing corporations, special committees, and individuals in internal investigations and enforcement actions before the SEC and DOJ arising under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other anti-corruption laws. We represent domestic and international clients in FCPA matters arising across the globe, including countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. To achieve optimal results, we work closely with the client’s internal audit and risk management teams. We also have extensive experience in developing anti-corruption policies and implementing appropriate compliance programs to ensure that our clients’ operations meet the highest ethical standards.
