Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
The Blanch Law Firm’s successful track record of defending clients facing Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) charges and investigations is extensive. Our white collar attorney team aggressively defends each FCPA case we handle, and our white collar firm assigns five or more defense attorneys to every client which assures a comprehensive defense. The Blanch Law Firm’s results driven approach to white collar crime separates us from other law firms, and has helped us secure positive judgments for our clients.
Many of the white collar crime cases we defend involve complex Business Litigation, international elements and overlapping legal issues. For example, our white collar attorney team represents two multi-billion dollar companies in current criminal and quasi-criminal litigation involving allegations of international anti-trust violations in one instance, and cross-border corporate wrongdoing allegations in another.
In two recent cases, we achieved successful results for our clients:
In the first case, our effective defense of a client facing Racketeering charges resulted in having their case dismissed.
In the other case, involving a $5 million+ Enterprise Corruption, Insurance Fraud & Grand Larceny charge, we successfully obtained restitution and probation for our client.

Whether a payment was lawful under the written laws of the foreign country may be difficult to determine.
