Taft Stettinius & Hollister partner Trent Sandifur, based in the firm’s Indianapolis office, was quoted in the Indiana Lawyer article titled, "Changing world inspires law school program" on April 25, 2012.
Sandifur commented on the role that globalization has played in increased enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). According to Sandifur, the FCPA has “become more of an enforcement priority largely because the Department of Justice and (the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) view it as a way to help developing countries…come out of a culture where bribery is much more accepted and a tolerated way of doing business. My job is to help companies set up programs to help employees and distributors and sales agents in remote areas of the world put procedures in place to prevent it.” Please click here to read the article in its entirety.
