New York Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Lawyer

Defense Against Alleged FCPA Violations in Federal Courts Nationwide

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a broad federal law that impacts corporate accounting and prohibits bribery of foreign officials. Violations of the FCPA are punished severely. Congress passed FCPA in 1977; but today, it is enforced more aggressively than it was previously.

The FCPA was a response by Congress to payments made by U.S. corporations to influence foreign politicians and officials. The FCPA prohibits any individual or corporation from offering anything of value to foreign official, foreign political party or a candidate for foreign political office if the goal is to influence that official’s conduct or gain an unfair business advantage. The federal government is serious about finding and prosecuting violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. New York federal criminal defense attorney Nishay K. Sanan aggressively defends those accused of FCPA violations in federal courts across the U.S.
