Howard W. Goldstein speaks with the Florida Times-Union about increased enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

New York litigation partner Howard W. Goldstein is quoted in an article about a former executive of Jacksonville, Florida-based Amor Holdings, who had been charged with bribery and later assisted the FBI in a sting operation that led to the arrest of 22 other executives. Commenting on the Department of Justice's increased enforcement of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violators, Mr. Goldstein said, "This is unique in that it's an undercover operation and requires a commitment of resources in a very different way and a very proactive way. It's not just a whistle blower coming forward. Foreign business can be a fine line to walk. The law forbids you from making a payment to a foreign official."
