How To Avoid Botching An FCPA Due Diligence Inquiry

Publisher: Law360

Bob Appleton was quoted in an article, "How To Avoid Botching An FCPA Due Diligence Inquiry," in Law360. Appleton offers best practices to government investigations practitioners on auditing companies for compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Clients should know that the kind of advice they can expect from outside counsel is related to the kind of access they are willing to give. If management withholds information, attorneys conducting investigations cannot properly do their job. "A lawyer has a decision to make at that point, as to whether it is worthwhile to proceed if you are denied access to certain people or materials," Appleton said. "It is likely a futile effort. A limited-access investigation will not serve the interests of the client, and will be discounted."
