Anti-Corruption Law and Compliance reviews the origins, meaning, and applications of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), in addition to coverage of the countries of China, the U.K., France, and Brazil, as ever-increasing enforcement by other countries continues to create considerable challenges for businesses facing allegations, investigations, or prosecutions in multiple jurisdictions. The prosecution of individuals as well as corporations also make this book’s detailed review of the FCPA’s specific provisions essential reading for attorneys representing individuals or businesses facing investigation or prosecution.
Specific chapters cover: key concepts such as jurisdiction, elements, enforcement, defenses, accounting provisions, penalties, and collateral consequences; particular areas of business such as oil and gas, defense, and the pharmaceutical, medical device, and healthcare-related industry; and the World Bank and other international financial institutions.

U.S. enforcement, including the increasing number of U.S. actions resolved with parallel and coordinated cross-border enforcement
