Since 2007, the surge in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) cases has been among the most dramatic international enforcement storylines. In addition to the sharp increase in the number of FCPA cases filed each year—and the resulting fines—the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission now employ increasingly aggressive tactics in corruption investigations, including wiretaps and sting operations. These trends show no signs of abating. Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer recently indicated that he expects FCPA actions to expand and intensify in the years to come.
