A note from the publisher
More than 100,000 unique visitors read the FCPA Blog each month, with over 18,000 subscribers receiving our daily digest and email alerts.
We set out eight years ago to cover all Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement actions -- the first to do that in real-time.*
Since then we've published more than 5,000 posts by 225 different authors.
The FCPA Blog is pro business and pro compliance.
Our mission is to help compliance professionals and others everywhere understand how corruption happens, what it does to people and institutions, and how anti-corruption laws and compliance programs work.
We cover the enforcement agencies, and the public and private institutions that promote compliance and the fight against graft.
Over the years, our coverage has expanded to include a wide variety of white-collar crime topics -- including commercial bribery, money laundering, trade sanctions, government contracting and debarment, cybersecurity, and securities and accounting fraud.
We also cover SEC and IRS whistleblower actions and False Claims Act cases.
Thanks for supporting the FCPA Blog.
Sincerely, Richard L. Cassin
*The FCPA is a United States federal law enacted in 1977. It prohibits paying bribes to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Violations of the anti-bribery provisions are prosecuted by the Department of Justice and are punishable by up to five years in prison. The Securities and Exchange Commission enforces the accounting provisions of the FCPA, which require U.S. public companies to have adequate internal controls to prevent and detect bribery and fraud, and to keep accurate and complete books and records.
