Corporate Enforcement Since 2006 

Yesterday we posted our 2011 FCPA enforcement index. Today we look at corporate enforcement for the years from 2006.

In 2011, 15 companies paid $508.6 million in criminal and civil penalties, and in disgorgement and interest.

In 2010, 23 companies paid $1.8 billion.

In 2009, 11 companies paid $644 million.

In 2008, 11 companies paid $890.

In 2007, 15 companies paid $128 million.

And in 2006, 4 companies paid $86.25 million.

Here's a breakdown (our first) for 2007 and 2006.
