April 15, 2014

On April 15, 2014, Corporate Counsel published an article by Friedman Kaplan litigation partners Mary E. Mulligan and Kent K. Anker about the litigation risks that public companies and their executives face as a result of the interaction between the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Sarbanes-Oxley. The authors explain that these risks are rising as a result of stricter FCPA enforcement and an aggressive plaintiff's bar, and they also suggest measures that public companies can take to enhance FCPA compliance practices and reduce litigation exposure.
