Law360, New York (September 17, 2009, 1:15 PM EDT) -- For the last several years, the "big dog" in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act hunt has been the U.S. Department of Justice, which has made anticorruption enforcement a key initiative and turned "FCPA" into a household term among white collar practitioners, corporate counsel and compliance professionals around the world.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has not lacked for involvement or enforcement power during the recent FCPA surge, but has been a much less visible counterpart to the DOJ. That appears to be changing.
