Matt Morley Featured in Compliance Week Article on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Coverage of Accounting Errors

Washington partner Matt Morley is quoted in "FCPA's Other Side: Accounting Enforcement," in the April 4th Compliance Week. The article reports on the little known provisions of the FCPA that cover accounting and bookkeeping errors. While the common perception is that the FCPA deals with bribery of foreign officials, Morley notes that FCPA enforcement actions "usually have nothing to do with anything foreign or corrupt" and that it's "very easy to run afoul of the statute" because the FCPA covers all accounting errors, even if they are not material.
