Today I wanted to begin to look at the Department of Justice (DOJ) “A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act” (the “Guidance”), which was released last week and available (at no cost) here. Initially I would note that despite the protestations of numerous of the FCPA commentariatti, the Guidance is an excellent resource for the compliance professional. It collects, in one very usable volume, the DOJ and SEC enforcement actions, Opinion Releases, current compliance best practices, and relevant Prosecutorial and Sentencing Guidelines.
