FCPA enforcement continues at an aggressive pace. The Justice Department and the SEC are devoting significant resources to FCPA enforcement. Several major cases are expected to be resolved in 2012. Already this year there have been some significant cases, including the first declination of prosecution of a company because of its compliance program. Recent surveys show that about one-half of all companies have already increased spending and resources on anti-corruption compliance.
