ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The guidance is centered on how acquirers, including private equity firms, could avoid enforcement action from the DOJ in cases wherein the buyer proceeds with an acquisition that may have FCPA issues but do not have sufficient time for completing appropriate anti-corruption due diligence before closing.
