FCPA Whistleblower Lawyer

When FCPA whistleblowers decide to come forward with information of foreign bribery, money laundering, or corruption, they choose our experienced firm to help represent them and file for rewards.

Since 1988, our FCPA whistleblower lawyers have represented anti-corruption whistleblowers in some of the largest cases in history, including Danske Bank whistleblower Howard Wilkinson, who exposed a $230 billion money-laundering scheme. And in 2020, an anonymous Greek whistleblower who proved that the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis paid millions in bribes to illegally market drugs in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Whistleblowers who are serious about hiring a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act whistleblower lawyer to help represent them in cases of corruption, such as money laundering or bribery to foreign officials, should contact our firm for legal assistance. Whistleblower protection and awards may also be available – ranging between 10 and 30 percent of the sanctions collected, depending how original, timely, and credible the information provided. The quicker a whistleblower takes action, the greater the chances are that they receive protection and awards.

Our FCPA law firm also works with numerous international whistleblowing partners, NGOs, and government officials to help improve anti-corruption laws and promote transparency worldwide. This public interest advocacy and dedication to the international whistleblower community is what separates us from every other firm on earth – we fight and support all whistleblowers.

Both U.S. and international anti-corruption whistleblowers may come forward and apply for protection and awards under the SEC and CFTC whistleblower reward programs. Get in touch with one of our FCPA whistleblower attorneys today for a free case evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The FCPA is jointly enforced by the DOJ and SEC, who may bring civil enforcement actions against issuers and their officers, directors, employees, stockholders, and/or agents for violations of the anti-bribery or accounting provisions of the FCPA. The CFTC has also made it clear that corrupt payments and more sophisticated commodities frauds, may also be in violation of the Commodity Exchange Act (“CEA”).

FCPA violations can appear as bribes to gain business, failure to upkeep proper books and financial records, falsification of company records, market manipulation, and other securities and commodities violations. For a full list of violations, please read The Ultimate Guide to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

The Dodd-Frank Act created the first rewards programs for anonymous whistleblowers, covering both commodity and securities frauds. To be anonymous, whistleblowers must retain a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act whistleblower lawyer to file Form TCR (“Tips, Complaints and Referrals”) on their behalf. Please note, to qualify for an award, the corruption being reported to the SEC or CFTC must result in monetary sanctions in excess of $1 million.

Employees of State-owned or controlled agencies are considered foreign officials according to the FCPA. However, broadly speaking, a foreign official is anyone controlled by the government of a foreign country that performs a function the controlling government treats as its own.
