Client Alert: DOJ and SEC Publish FCPA Resource Guide: Affirm Approach Reflected in Enforcement Cases of Recent Years

In this alert, Partners Iris E. Bennett, Larry P. Ellsworth, and Michael K. Lowman and Associates Nicholas R. Barnaby,  Coral A. Negron and Ryan A. Particka  present a short summary of the key portions of a November 14, 2012 report issued jointly by Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC),  Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).  The very length of the 120-page document, and the work that went into it, evidences the importance these agencies place on the FCPA and suggest that the recent upturn in the numbers of cases can be expected to continue for some years to come.
