This issue of Skadden's semiannual Cross-Border Investigations Update takes a close look at recent cases and enforcement trends, including developments in U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement, the rise of whistleblower activity in China and elsewhere, and efforts by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate China-based companies that issue U.S.-listed securities. This issue also looks at tools U.S. congressional committees can use to obtain evidence from non-U.S. corporations headquartered abroad; the forthcoming sentencing under new guidelines of a U.K. company convicted of offenses involving the bribery of foreign public officials; and the EU’s and the U.S.’s divergent views concerning data protection.
