Partner Philip Urofsky (Washington, D.C.-Litigation), associate Jesse van Genugten (New York-Litigation/PDF), counsel Jonathan Swil and associate Mathew Orr (both London-Litigation), co-authored an article titled “Civil Litigation in the Aftermath of FCPA and U.K. Bribery Act Investigations.” The article, published in Anti-Corruption Report, notes that “securing a settlement with investigating authorities will not curb follow-up litigation by victims of corporate misconduct” and may instead “encourage it.” This means that companies should be prepared to defend against subsequent lawsuits or, at least, be ready to incur additional litigation and settlement costs after resolving an FCPA or U.K. Bribery Act investigation.

Read “Civil Litigation in the Aftermath of FCPA and U.K. Bribery Act Investigations.”
