Partner Philip Urofsky (Washington, DC-Litigation) and associates R. Zachary Torres-Fowler (New York-International Arbitration) and Jordan Yeagley (Washington, DC-Litigation) co-authored an article titled “Game Over,” published by Mining Journal on June 19.
In their article, the authors examine how the DOJ’s recent charges against FIFA officials and the SEC’s enforcement action against mining company BHP Billiton call attention to the FCPA compliance risks of acquiring and utilizing corporate sponsorships of international sporting events. The failure to remain diligent in overseeing effective anti-bribery compliance practices in these instances, they say, risks exposing a company to potential FCPA violations.
