Mr. Warin is co-author of Bloomberg BNA Corporate Practice Portfolio Series No. 104 and Securites Practice Portfolio Series No. 285, The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Enforcement and Compliance.  This portfolio analyzes the key elements of the statute that prohibits bribery of non-U.S. public officials and sets standards for recordkeeping and internal controls at corporations that are publicly traded in the U.S. The portfolio begins with a discussion of the origins of the FCPA and then describes the scope and elements of the Act's two major provisions, the anti-bribery prohibition and the accounting and internal control requirements.  The portfolio explains the FCPA's dual enforcement regime, as both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice handle foreign corruption cases. The portfolio also describes foreign anti-bribery laws and the growth of international cooperation to combat corruption.
