Overview

Our Clients

Katten’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) litigators represent clients in all aspects of anti-corruption compliance, enforcement and defense in jurisdictions around the world.

Our Services

Leading global companies and corporate executives count on Katten when they are facing a high-stakes investigation by the US Department of Justice (DOJ), the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. We have particularly strong experience representing individuals who are targeted in FCPA investigations—an area of increased focus for the DOJ.  

We regularly advise clients regarding their due diligence obligations under the FCPA. Our attorneys identify risk and help protect our clients in a holistic way, assisting them in drafting and customizing compliance programs designed to minimize their legal and reputational risks, while also strengthening their business positions. Katten’s experience also extends into the area of court-appointed corporate monitorships, and we currently serve as an independent FCPA compliance monitor for an international pharmaceutical company.
