2017 was most active year for new FCPA-related investigations

Last year, 45 new FCPA-related investigations were publicly disclosed for the first time, according to data from FCPA Tracker.

There are now 134 pending FCPA-related investigations that companies or agencies have disclosed.

That compares with a total of 85 companies on the FCPA Blog’s corporate investigations list for early 2017, and just 78 companies at the end of 2011.

(The FCPA Blog no longer publishes the corporate investigations list.)
