The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have stressed the need for companies to conduct FCPA due diligence before entering into transactions with third parties or buying another company.

In an article written at the end of 2011 and published in the State Bar of California’s Business Law News, in issue 1 of 2012, Rebekah Poston and David Saltzman provide practical guidance on how to conduct FCPA due diligence.
