Our lawyers have worked on some of the largest and most significant FCPA matters in recent years as counsel to companies, individuals, and independent board committees. The firm’s FCPA team is comprised of former prosecutors, including a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who prosecuted a leading FCPA case involving a bribery scheme in Azerbaijan, and several lawyers from top-tier big firms with broad-ranging FCPA experience, including the representation of Siemens AG in the largest-ever FCPA internal and regulatory investigation.
In addition to our extensive experience with FCPA investigations, our lawyers serve as trusted advisors to clients on FCPA matters and related issues. They have led due diligence reviews and provided compliance advice and training for multinational companies across a wide spectrum of industries including engineering, energy, consumer products, financial services, and construction. In FCPA matters, as in our White Collar Defense practice generally, our goal is always to advance our clients’ objectives through thoughtful and practical counseling, vigorous advocacy, and timely, efficient, and favorable resolution of any investigation.
Our European and U.S. offices frequently work together in assisting clients in cross-border investigations led by the U.S. Department of Justice. Our Paris team also represents clients before the French anti-corruption agency (AFA – Agence Française Anticorruption).
