NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALM's Law Journal Press, a leading publisher of print and digital publications for legal professionals, today announced the release of a new book, The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Compliance, Investigations and Enforcement, co-authored by Martin J. Weinstein, Robert J. Meyer and Jeffrey D. Clark.

Passed in the wake of the Watergate Scandal, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act has emerged as a powerful tool used by law enforcement to combat corruption, obtaining record-setting fines from corporations and significant jail time for executives. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Compliance, Investigations and Enforcement offers complete guidance for attorneys counseling corporations, officers and directors on how to identify red flags, avoid risk and address problems that arise.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Compliance, Investigations and Enforcement covers all aspects of the legislation, explaining the Act's anti-bribery and recordkeeping requirements, potential civil and criminal liability for corporations and individuals, and compliance and risk mitigation strategies. Topics include: managing risks related to third-party agents, consultants and representatives; FCPA issues in mergers, acquisitions and other transactions; compliance program best practices; how to effectively and efficiently conduct corporate internal investigations; how to defend or resolve an FCPA investigation; and more.

The authors are partners in the Compliance & Enforcement Practice Group of Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. All three are former federal prosecutors with extensive experience handling high profile Foreign Corrupt Practices cases and counseling corporations in their most sensitive international compliance matters.
