With the new administration and several notable issues continuously emerging in the backdrop, an increase in enforcement actions is expected to hound the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) landscape bringing both complexity and new compliance challenges to businesses. Significant developments affecting large corporate FCPA settlements, multi-jurisdictional FCPA matters, and increased individual enforcement need crucial consideration and anticipation from companies and their counsel.
