In this climate of increased regulation and intensified enforcement, clients turn to Arnold & Porter for our insights and extensive experience in global anti-corruption investigations, defense, and compliance matters. With a veteran team of former high-level prosecutors and lawyers from the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Department of Homeland Security, and US Attorneys' Offices, as well as the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, we vigorously defend companies and individuals by anticipating and strategically responding to government enforcement actions under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act, and other anti-bribery laws and regulations.
We represent global leaders in diverse industries that span electronics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, financial services, defense and aerospace, hospitality, retail, medical equipment, energy, chemicals, and insurance. Our clients' operations have taken us to more than 85 countries, and we have established relationships with local counsel should issues arise under host country law. Recent client demands have engaged more than 80 of our lawyers for FCPA or anti-corruption matters.
Arnold & Porter works with clients to minimize exposure by tailoring compliance programs to the specific cultural, structural, and systemic activities of the organization. Our experience covers risk reviews, development of company policies to mitigate risks, and training for legal departments and business employees. We work with both domestic and foreign companies, including designing programs and training for non-US locations.
