In light of the greatly increased federal enforcement activity against corporations for a range of FCPA violations, it’s more important than ever that attorneys have the guidance needed to minimize corporate legal exposure on this major front.
PLI’s Doing Business Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act gives you that vital legal and procedural information. This crucial reference helps you to develop internal compliance programs that detect and prevent illegalities; make sure the business steps a company is taking are fully legal; spot cautionary ”red flags” and sidestep potential legal pitfalls; draft compliant business agreements; satisfy FCPA’s complicated accounting standards, and avoid RICO violations, wire and mail fraud, and other legal missteps.
Doing Business Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act also keeps a steady eye on the latest enforcement actions, reminding companies and their counsel of the harsh penalties for falsified books and records, mischaracterized payments, fictitious invoices, insufficient internal accounting controls, and other charges.
Updated at least once a year, Doing Business Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is an invaluable handbook for in-house and outside corporate counsel, corporate executives and managers, compliance officers, accountants, financial advisers, and regulators.
