Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) aggressively investigate and litigate under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Any individual or company that engages in overseas business is a potential target under this liberally-interpreted law that penalizes the alleged bribery of foreign officials. Such activity often arises in conjunction with other alleged crimes, including white collar charges, RICO and COCCA charges, and Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) crimes.

The Eichner Law Firm has diverse experience in issues where the FCPA plays a role. Internationally, the firm has handled violations enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) involving illegal exports to foreign countries. Our firm not only handles responses to charges, but we also help individuals and companies avoid violations in the first place through our Internal Compliance Investigations practice area, helping clients implement appropriate anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance policies, procedures, and controls.

The Eichner Law Firm is uniquely positioned to assist companies and individuals in responding to federal inquiries, examinations, and subpoenas. Our attorneys have built relationships with federal agencies, including the FBI, IRS, and SEC, and also have deep experience in pretrial negotiation, which can prevent a costly trial. Our investigators are not only skilled at comprehensive intelligence gathering, but we also boast David Riordon, a former special agent with the IRS tasked with specifically complex accounting irregularities. The Eichner Law Firm has the necessary team to handle any FCPA charge, including any other related criminal charges that may be brought.
