In recent years, government regulators have become increasingly active in investigating and prosecuting suspected violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). These investigations can have an extremely disruptive effect on small- and medium-sized companies, leading to heavy fines, terminations, and a damaged reputation.
At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., our Orlando federal criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience working with Florida companies that have been accused of misconduct overseas. If your firm has been accused of violating the FCPA, we will provide individualized legal support designed to protect your assets and interests.
Passed in 1977, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is intended to prevent American workers from engaging in the bribery of foreign officials. Regulators take violations of the FCPA very seriously; if your company has been accused, it is extremely important that you take action.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., place an emphasis on resolving legal actions as early in the process as possible. Over the course of our firm's history, we have had significant success in ending legal actions by negotiating a favorable pretrial settlement. These settlements, which often call for the implementation of a corporate compliance program, allow our clients to effectively manage their risks and resolve legal actions quickly.
In many cases, the government does not target corporations for violations of the FCPA. Instead, individual employees often find themselves under investigation. If you have conducted business abroad and now face bribery allegations, our Orlando criminal defense attorneys are prepared to protect your reputation and your career.
