Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

DELIVERING A STRONG DEFENSE AGAINST FOREIGN BRIBERY ACCUSATIONS

The anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), enacted in 1977, make it unlawful for a U.S. citizen to make payments to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining business, retaining business, or directing business for any firm or to any person. Companies and persons can be held criminally and civilly responsible for corruption offences committed abroad.

The SEC and DOJ are jointly responsible for enforcing the FCPA. The SEC brings civil enforcement actions against issuers and their officers, directors, employees, and agents. The DOJ criminally prosecutes issuers and their officers, directors, employees, agents, and domestic concerns, as well as foreign persons and entities acting within the US.

Golan Christie Taglia offers experience handling FCPA matters. Our team is led by Steven J Rosenberg, an accomplished civil and criminal litigation lawyer with more than 40 years’ experience. Steven has tried over 100 cases to verdict in both state and federal courts.
