We provide advice regarding anti-bribery laws and regulations applicable to Japanese companies who act globally, such as bribery toward foreign officials under the Unfair Competition Prevention Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the Bribery Act 2010. As the frequency of cases has increased where Japanese companies are investigated by the domestic and overseas governmental authorities, and have had to pay tremendous amounts of penalties by entering into plea agreements with overseas authorities, it is important, for this type of breach of anti-bribery laws and regulations, to promptly discover the facts and negotiate with governmental authorities. Lawyers who have extensive experience working on these types of matters handle FCPA and other anti-bribery matters. Moreover, we provide advice regarding the creation of structures dealing with compliance, risk management, and internal control, such as the preparation of anti-bribery rules and guidelines.
