Anti-Corruption/Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement in the U.S. continues to be a priority. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has levied more than $4 billion in corporate fines, penalties, disgorgement, and prejudgment interest over the last 18 months. Anti-Corruption enforcement is also gaining momentum in other countries such as the U.K. Brazil, and France. Furthermore, enforcement against individuals continues to be a U.S. priority as was evidenced by the recent U.S. v. Hoskins trial.
