Strategies for Minimizing Risk Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Related Laws

Elgar Compliance Guides

Mike Koehler, Founder and Editor of FCPA Professor and Law Professor, Southern Illinois University, School of Law, US

In the minds of some, complying with the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related laws such as the UK Bribery Act is easy: ‘you just don’t bribe’. The reality, as sophisticated professionals know, is not so simple. This book is for professionals across various disciplines who recognize the difficulties of compliance and want to learn strategies for minimizing risk under aggressively enforced corporate bribery laws. The book uses issue-spotting scenarios to present risk and guides professionals through various components of compliance best practices from the fundamentals of conducting a risk assessment and effectively communicating compliance expectations, to implementing and overseeing compliance strategies.

‘Professor Koehler has written a book corporate compliance staff and their advisors will want to have in easy reach as they help companies avoid entanglement in the ever growing thicket of antibribery laws.’
– Rick Messick, The Global Anticorruption Blog

‘Professor Mike Koehler is a leading authority on anti-corruption. He uses that knowledge to anticipate trends in the law and to distill the principles and actions that matter in practice. For companies that want to get the most value out of their anti-corruption efforts, Professor Koehler’s advice is invaluable.’
– Jay Jorgensen, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Walmart, US

‘For years, Mike Koehler – also known as the “FCPA Professor” – has been a leading voice in an important conversation about one of the key enforcement priorities of the United States government. This book is a prime example of why corporate compliance professionals and practitioners alike continue listen to Professor Koehler. His rigorous discussion and analysis of the legal framework underlying the FCPA is a must read.’
– Jay Darden, Paul Hastings LLP and former Assistant Chief, US Department of Justice Fraud Section

‘Professor Mike Koehler is an authoritative and practical voice in understanding the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the many related US and foreign laws and regulations impacting how companies conduct business in the global economy. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the FCPA and distills it into understandable and user-friendly teachings that both lawyers and non-lawyers can understand and use.’
– Claudius Sokenu, Andeavor, US
