Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Crimes

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“Act”), codified under 15 U.S. Code §78dd-1, was adopted to limit corrupt business practices by American citizens with foreign officials. In short, the Act prohibits United States citizens or business entities from bribing foreign officials. However, the Act is expansive and covers a myriad of interactions between U.S. citizens, business entities, and foreign officials. The sheer scope of the Act makes it particularly difficult for individuals to know they are in violation of federal law.

Despite this far-reaching scope, our attorneys know how to defend these charges and our experience in this area is unique to other firms. Like extradition cases, our office’s location in South Florida allows us the international experience to protect our clients and provide them with the most effective representation.
