Recently, the FCPA Blog published a list of the “40 biggest Foreign Corrupt Practices Act resolutions of all time.” The list is false and misleading in many respects. For starters, the list contains enforcement actions in which the company was not even charged or found to be in violation of the FCPA’s provisions. Second, it contains inaccurate and inconsistently applied math. Third, it contains amounts that the DOJ and SEC (the only government agencies on planet earth that actually enforce the FCPA) did not even secure.
If you value accurate FCPA enforcement information, set forth below is a list of the top 50 corporate FCPA settlement amounts actually secured by the DOJ/SEC.
