DOJ’s Intention to Clarify Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Enforcement is Encouraging

We are encouraged by Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s announcement yesterday that the Justice Department intends to issue detailed new guidance on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act’s criminal and civil enforcement provisions.

Yesterday’s announcement is a welcome acknowledgement of what we in the business community have long said – DOJ’s current FCPA enforcement practices need clarification and modernization.

We believe that strong guidance from the DOJ could be the foundation for lasting legislative improvements to the statute.
