Every day, thousands of attorneys and compliance experts depend upon Tom Fox’s blog, the FCPA Compliance and Ethics Blog, to stay current and thoroughly understand the latest developments in anti-bribery compliance and business ethics. His succinct but informal style distills the most complex legal issues into short, digestible analyses with simple conclusions.  

Mr. Fox’s latest book, The Complete Compliance Handbook, again follows this winning formula that his fans have come to expect.

Moreover, Mr. Fox provides a unique treatment of issues that are not frequently addressed elsewhere, such as the roles of Human Resources and the Board of Directors in combatting bribery.
