The year 2016 may well be one for the books in the enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). In February there were nearly as many FCPA enforcement actions as there were in all of 2015. Yet the summer of 2016 brought some significant enforcement actions which may well portend long-term changes in FCPA enforcement. In my new eBook,  I explore these enforcement actions, discuss the underlying facts of each and provide the lessons for the compliance practitioner. I will also look at the enforcement actions in the context of the Yates Memo and recently announced change in the way the Department of Justice (DOJ) will assess damages in its prosecutions based upon the FCPA Pilot Program, announced in April, 2016.

My latest eBook is published by Corporate Compliance Insights and joins a list of books which I have partner with CCI to publish. You can download this eBook for free by clicking here. At the 2016 FCPA enforcement year moves towards conclusion, it may well be one for the books. The summer of 2016 may prove to be as significant a three month period of FCPA as we have seen in some time.
