Preventing FCPA Violations by your International Consultants, Representatives and Distributors

US companies and others subject to jurisdiction under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) can be held vicariously liable for an FCPA violation committed on their behalf or at their direction by third parties. In fact, most enforcement actions brought by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under the FCPA involve third parties.
