White-Collar Attorneys Author Article on FCPA Compliance for Law360

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (November 29, 2018) — Four Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC attorneys have published an article in Law360 about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

Partners Jack Sharman, Brandon Essig and Tenley Armstrong, and associate Jeff Doss, co-authored the article, which published on the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Department of Justice’s announcement that its FCPA pilot program for enforcement would become permanent. The article outlines the basics of the policy and what the corporate community needs to understand about FCPA compliance.

“FCPA compliance is simple. Simplicity, however, does not mean lack of difficulty,” write the authors. “The key to good FCPA compliance is less about parsing statutory nuance and more about a company resolving to commit its culture and operations to implementing effective compliance measures and getting common-sense investigators on the ground when an investigation is called for.”

Sharman, Essig, Armstrong and Doss are all members of Lightfoot’s White-Collar Criminal Defense and Corporate Investigations practice group.
