Members of our Government Investigations & White Collar team recently presented a timely webinar on the new Foreign Extortion Prevention Act (FEPA).  The Act, which has been referred to as  “the most consequential anti-foreign-bribery law passed in almost 50 years,” allows the DOJ to prosecute foreign officials who demand or accept a bribe from a U.S. citizen or company. Understanding FEPA is critical for US companies with international business interactions and other companies whose business subjects them to US jurisdiction. Read on at the link below for an outline of FEPA’s core provisions and relevant enforcement considerations for companies, international organizations and foreign governments.
