The Justice Department and the SEC returned a big year in 2016 FCPA enforcement. In April 2016, DOJ adopted its FCPA Pilot Program to encourage companies to self-disclose FCPA violations and cooperate with government investigations.
Despite a slowdown in 2015 and early 2016, DOJ and the SEC brought a record breaking number of major enforcement actions, including Odebrecht/Braskem, Teva Pharmaceuticals, VimpelCom, Embraer, and Morgan Stanley, and collected the most in fines and penalties ever. DOJ and the SEC took deep dives into company compliance programs, pointed out deficiencies in internal controls, and overall displayed a continuing effort to uncover bribery schemes and risks.
