The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Compliance, Investigations and Enforcement – A Complete Practical Guide for Practitioners

In this landmark treatise, Willkie Compliance, Investigations & Enforcement partners, Martin Weinstein, Jeffrey Clark and Robert Meyer combine their extensive experience to address all aspects of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and provide practical guidance to navigate day‐to‐day FCPA‐related issues.

Martin, Jeff and Bob are widely regarded as market leaders in this area of law and are frequently recognized by the leading legal directories and third-party publications. Having worked together in private practice for decades, they have sought to create a comprehensive guide on the FCPA, which both private practitioners and in-house counsel can refer to as a point of reference.

Topics that are covered in the book include the FCPA’s anti-bribery and accounting provisions, the types of conduct for which corporations and individual officers and directors can be held civilly and criminally liable, implementation of a compliance program and risk mitigation measures, and what to do when an FCPA issue arises, whether through an internal or government investigation. This online-only resource also addresses FCPA corollary laws, including the UK Bribery Act, Sapin II and Italian Law 231, with analyses from leading English, French and Italian practitioners. In each chapter, the authors provide invaluable advice to help business leaders navigate the challenges of conducting business successfully and legally around the world.

Supplementing the authors’ legal and practical analysis of the FCPA are:

  1. Practical forms, including sample policies
  2. Due diligence checklists
  3. Sample contractual FCPA safeguards
  4. Compliance certifications
