Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Violations Attorney

Respected, knowledgeable Houston law firm familiar with such cases. Privacy respected.

Whistleblowers considering taking action against foreign corruption involving American officials overseas should be familiar with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Enacted in 1977, the FCPA primarily addresses allegations of bribery of foreign officials, according to Brewer & Pritchard, a Houston-based law firm that handles whistleblower cases in the U.S. and throughout the world.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act covers bribery allegations involving government officials or private companies. This wide-ranging law can also include foreign companies doing business in the United States. Whistleblowers who report such illegal activity routinely receive a financial reward for doing so under the terms of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Specifically, the whistleblower often receives a portion of the money - often 10 to 30 percent - recovered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Such rewards are stipulated under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which was enacted in 2010.

Many corruption cases involve qui tam law. As a result, whistleblowers are often entitled to financial compensation for exposing corruption of individuals or companies. But ultimately, qui tam actions are not about the money. They're about justice, about holding people accountable for their actions.
