Seminárío Discute Aspectos Jurídicos No Combate à Corrupção Transnacional

Formation of a system to combat corruption in the private sector was the focus of the FCPA and Local Regulatory Seminar: “Legal and Compliance Aspects in Combating Corruption” held on Sept. 12 in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian Business covered the seminar and featured comments by Gardere Partner Charles E. Meacham.

 "Companies in Brazil and elsewhere in the world can be investigated by the FCPA, as long as they are acting in the United States,” Mr. Meacham said. “Currently, there are 87 companies under investigation for alleged breaches. This year one company has been fined more than $ 54 million."

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.


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.
