Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

Companies and executives are recognizing the need for proactive counseling and the development of sophisticated and reliable compliance programs to reduce the risks inherent in doing business around the world. While export and anticorruption regulations each present their own unique risks and issues, companies can benefit by analyzing these risks together. Our attorneys have experience assisting clients with developing compliance programs and procedures that address potential Foreign Corrupt Practices Act “red flags,” even in high-risk countries and transactions. 

But our experience is not limited to the development of compliance programs. We have handled significant cases and have hand-on experience representing clients before the U.S. Department of Justice. We routinely team with Fidelity Forensics Group, our on-site experienced forensic accountants and investigators, to conduct investigations and evaluate existing FCPA compliance programs, even in enforcement situations.

In addition, Gardere has a robust International practice group that enhances our FCPA services. For example, we have attorneys experienced in international tax who have quickly and efficiently guided the trade team on customs transfer pricing nuances affecting import compliance. Our team also includes attorneys with experience in international dispute resolution, international corporate transactions, Mexican law and Latin American issues.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
