Wiley Rein Attorneys Discuss 2013 FCPA Enforcement in Article
Wiley Rein partners Daniel B. Pickard, Ralph J. Caccia, and Gregory M. Williams, and associates Laura El-Sabaawi and Brandon J. Moss, authored an article, “The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: 2013 Year-in-Review,” which was published February 14 in Bloomberg BNA’s International Trade Daily Bulletin.
The attorneys note that U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission demonstrated a distinct “quality” versus “quantity” enforcement approach to FCPA matters. Mr. Caccia and Mr. Pickard are co-chairs of Wiley Rein’s FCPA Practice. Mr. Williams, Ms. El-Sabaawi, and Ms. Moss are members of the practice.
One notable takeaway from last year, the article reports, is an increased focus on the prosecution of individuals. In giving a detailed analysis of the government’s FCPA action, the Wiley Rein team concludes that 2014 promises to bring more of the same.
