December 2019 – Hughes Hubbard’s 2019 FCPA & Anti-Bribery Alert is a comprehensive review of the cases, trends, and enforcement actions that shaped anti-corruption law throughout 2018 and 2019. In the Alert, the firm’s anti-corruption attorneys analyze noteworthy enforcement developments over the past year and highlight actionable trends and lessons pertinent to general counsel and compliance professionals.

The Alert details each FCPA resolution and ongoing criminal matter from 2018 through publication. It also examines the underlying conduct related to each resolution, the actions of the companies throughout their investigations, and the resulting penalty.

The Alert has expanded to cover key developments from other jurisdictions as the fight against foreign bribery has taken root outside the United States. This year’s Alert includes chapters on anti-corruption enforcement developments in France, the U.K., Brazil, China, and Mexico, as well as anti-corruption enforcement by multilateral development banks.

From an enforcement trend perspective, past is prologue. International coordination, U.S. law enforcement coordination, tailored monitorships, third party risk factors, technological developments, and the increasing importance of timely remediation are just a few ascendant global anti-corruption trends discussed in the Alert.

The Alert’s analysis and insights can be useful tools for multinational companies seeking to manage operations and identify and mitigate significant areas of anti-corruption risk. Click the links below to access particular chapters or click here to download the complete Alert.
