As a result of globalization, an increasing number of U.S. companies engage in business all over the world. To compete in this landscape, these companies must have a clear understanding of laws restricting the business practices that they may employ in securing or maintaining business opportunities abroad. One such law is the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which has become a key enforcement priority for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Locke Lord attorneys are skilled in advising clients on how to respond to and avoid FCPA issues to ensure that they will be able to compete effectively in the international market. Our attorneys also possess the skills to try FCPA issues if they proceed to an indictment. Several of Locke Lord’s attorneys involved in this area are Fellows in the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, which is widely considered to be the premier professional trial organization in the U.S.
