Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
Accused of Bribing Foreign Officials in Miami, FL?
Since the U.S. economy has become increasingly global, both the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have prioritized enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Due to the complexities of this law and shifting government priorities, businesses with international ties face increasing risks.
At Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., we can guide you through the intricacies of the federal criminal justice system to help you avoid serious criminal and civil penalties. With over 45 years of legal experience, our legal team can protect your rights and business interests throughout the legal process.
Overview of FCPA
Enacted in 1977, the FCPA prohibits U.S. individuals and corporations from bribing foreign officials to further business interests. While the anti-bribery provisions make it illegal to pay, offer, authorize, or promise payment to any foreign entity to influence business matters, the accounting require international businesses to maintain accurate records of any payment authorization and other transactions.
Individuals who violate the anti-bribery section of the FCPA face a maximum five-year prison sentence, a fine no more than $250,000 or twice the amount gained or lost due to corrupt payment, and a civil fine not exceeding $10,000.
Individuals who violate the accounting provisions face a maximum 20-year federal prison term, a fine of up to $5 mill or twice the amount gained or lost due to the violation, and a civil fine no more than $100,000.
Companies that violate the FCPA face criminal fines of up to $25 million or twice the amount gained or lost due to the violation, as well as civil fines of up to $500,000.
