Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
Violations Whistleblower Lawyer

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) prohibits bribes and corruption of foreign officials and/or falsifying of books and records by a U.S. or foreign company that are listed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Under the SEC's Whistleblower reward and incentive program insiders that properly report FCPA violations can recover large rewards or bounties for exposing the overseas bribes, corruption and criminal acts.  In many instances the corporate bribes and illegal kickbacks are paid to foreign officials in order to secure large multi-million dollar contracts overseas.  In an attempt to eliminate these international bribes and corruption practices it is important for individuals with first hand knowledge of FCPA violations to come forward, work with an anti-corruption lawyer, and expose the companies and criminals that are bribing foreign officials.  In some cases the SEC incentive program has procedures in place where through a whistleblower lawyer you can report violations while remaining anonymous during the majority of the SEC investigation.

For more information on reporting potential FCPA violations or to speak to an attorney, please email The Coomer Law Firm or use our simple contact form.  A Whistleblower lawyer will inform, discuss, and educate you about your potential  anti-corruption actions and the possible rewards that you may be eligible to receive under the SEC whistleblower incentive program.
