Paul Hastings has been the second most active global law firm advising on FCPA monitorships and settlements, playing a key role in virtually every significant FCPA settlement over the last decade, including the first simultaneous resolution to include United States and Brazilian authorities.

Our team advises clients on all aspects of anti-corruption law – designing and improving compliance programs, conducting due diligence on merger and acquisition targets and intermediaries, leading internal investigations and negotiating with government enforcement authorities, handling post-resolution compliance responsibilities, and navigating the civil litigation that often accompanies anti-corruption investigations.
