SINGAPORE–LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – April 18, 2008 – American lawyer Richard L. Cassin, founder of the popular online FCPA Blog, has published the first book about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) that’s written in an informal and conversational style.
“There’s world-wide interest in the FCPA,” Cassin said, “and this book makes information about it accessible to anyone.”
The FCPA is the primary United States law against international public corruption. Because of its long reach, stiff penalties and recently stepped-up enforcement, it’s now one of the best-known and most feared white-collar criminal laws in the world.
Bribery Abroad has 35 easy-to-read chapters and an extensive topical index. It explains in non-technical language how companies and individuals can comply with the FCPA, and what to do if a violation happens. Topics also include legal defenses, noteworthy prosecutions, and recent developments in the global battle against public corruption.
Cassin has over 25 years experience dealing with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. He’s the founder of Cassin Law LLC, a law firm that helps American and other companies comply with United States laws.
“In my law practice, I encounter real people dealing with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in the real world,” Cassin said. “It’s not easy for them. That has shaped my view of the FCPA. And that’s what the book is about.”
Bribery Abroad is now available as a quality paperback or download at fcpablog.com and cassinlaw.com.
