Morgan Lewis

Morgan Lewis brings a cross-disciplinary team of lawyers to address every aspect of FCPA investigations and compliance. From due diligence in mergers and acquisitions to compliance and training, to defending companies in multi-agency enforcement actions, our lawyers have the skills to help keep companies out of danger. Our team represents clients before the DOJ and SEC in connection with FCPA investigations and before the Serious Fraud Office in connection with UK Bribery Act and Prevention of Corruption Act inquiries. Those representations include work in countries throughout the globe, in particular in the Middle East, Asia, Central and South America, and sub-Saharan Africa. We also handle matters under investigation by authorities in the European Union, the former Soviet Union, Latin America, and elsewhere. Where red flags are identified, we conduct efficient internal investigations to quickly gather relevant facts and advise the client on the best course of action. Thanks to our international presence, we can respond effectively and quickly to any FCPA problem—wherever it arises. We weigh the advantages and disadvantages of self-disclosure based on the particular client’s circumstances, and where the government is already involved we leverage our experience with the DOJ and the SEC to defend companies and individuals in criminal or civil proceedings. Throughout the course of an investigation, we advise on remedial actions, using our understanding of and experience with enforcement agencies and our experience with compliance best practices implemented by clients in a variety of industries to best position the client to mitigate exposure.
