Enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in the Age of Obama

April 19, 2010

Federal enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the "FCPA") has never been more sweeping, never more robust than it is today. Enacted in 1977 to bring a halt to what was seen as the widespread bribery of foreign officials as a way of doing business overseas, the FCPA was rarely enforced during its first 30 years.
