White Collar Defense & Government Investigations | FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT AND ANTI-KICKBACK LAWS
With the globalization of business and the increased complexity of supply chains in government contracts, two commonly prosecuted statutes are the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the federal Anti-Kickback Act (AKA) and related state statutes. Working with our International Trade Practice, we have a range of experience advising clients on potential exposure to FCPA issues. We also have cutting-edge knowledge of both federal and state anti-kickback regulations, including their intersection with the False Claims Act (FCA) and other federal regulations. For example, in one recent investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) into false claims and kickbacks through so-called "alliance agreements," we succeeded in persuading the government to dismiss three clients that supplied technology products and/or provided consulting services to various government agencies.
