Our team has negotiated settlements for our clients ranging from declinations to some of the most significant FCPA corporate settlements in U.S. history addressing allegations of misconduct on multiple continents. Members of our group include former senior SEC lawyers and DOJ prosecutors, including the Deputy Assistant Attorney General who oversaw the DOJ Criminal Division’s FCPA unit and issuance of the U.S. government’s hallmark DOJ – SEC Resource Guide to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Chambers USA ranked Cravath as a leading law firm in the nation in its FCPA category (2018). Clients frequently look to Cravath’s experienced team to advise on anti‑corruption compliance programs, whether to self‑disclose potential FCPA violations to governmental authorities and how to coordinate anti‑corruption investigations across multiple countries, and for strategy in remediating, and mitigating the enforcement impact of, FCPA violations.
