The Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) recently released Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) guidance provided to a U.S. company that is also an “issuer”, as defined under Section 30A of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (Opinion Procedure Release No. 07-01).

The question centered on the FCPA affirmative defense regarding payments of reasonable and bona fide expenses on behalf of foreign officials directly related to the promotion, demonstration, or explanation of products or services. Although DOJ Opinion Procedures apply only to the parties requesting guidance, Opinion Procedure Release No. 07-01 provides insight as to the types of parameters an issuer or U.S. entity with global activities or aspirations might consider when crafting or revising its marketing/promotion expenditure policies and procedures.

Opinion Procedure Release No. 07-01 involved the payment of expenses for a six-person delegation of officials from an Asian country who were to come to the U.S. to tour one of the issuer’s facilities. The purpose of the tour was to enable the foreign officials to familiarize themselves with the requestor’s operations and credibility:

* The issuer did not have operations in the foreign country or with the foreign government.
* The visit was to last for 4 days.
* Only domestic travel, lodging and meal expenses were to be covered; travel was limited to economy class. The foreign government would pay for international travel.
* No payment of expenses for any spouses, family or other guests of the foreign officials.
* No payments for activities other than the meals and receptions related to meetings, speakers or events planned by the issuer.
* Payments were only to be made directly to the service providers relating to the visit; no payments were to be made to the foreign government or its delegates.
* Souvenirs provided to the foreign officials would be of nominal value and would feature the name of the issuer.
* All costs and expenses relating to the promotional visit would be accurately recorded in the issuer’s books and records.
* The issuer obtained written assurance from an established law firm with offices in both the foreign country and the U.S. that the visit and the payment of expenses, as described, would not be contrary to the laws of the foreign country.

Regarding the final point, since the UN Convention Against Corruption entered into force on December 14, 2005 (the “UN Convention”), it is recommended that U.S. companies, similar to the issuer in this instance, confirm that the proposed activities not only comply with U.S. law, but also the laws of the foreign country in question. With 140 signatories and 95 countries having already ratified the UN Convention, it not only has broad applicability, but requires parties to implement anti-corruption policies and practices in their countries. Such anti-corruption measures implemented by UN Convention parties may differ from U.S. laws in scope.

The Washington Business Journal recognized McGuireWoods' Partner Stephen Robinson as the “Top Washington Lawyer” in employment litigation in its fourth annual event recognizing the top lawyers in the metropolitan Washington area. Finalists in 15 legal categories were selected from a pool of almost 500 nominations.

Based in McLean, Va. (Tysons Corner), Robinson practices labor and employment law with an emphasis on litigation. He serves as a resource to McGuireWoods' labor and employment clients and his firm colleagues, advising on all aspects of employment and labor relations matters. He has litigated cases involving discrimination, wrongful discharge, claims for pension and profit sharing benefits, AIDS, defamation, negligent hiring and supervision, First Amendment issues, and covenants not to compete. He also represents approximately 40 professional athletes.

In addition to his latest honor, he was named a 2007 "Washington, D.C. and Virginia Super Lawyer" by Law & Politics magazine; one of "Virginia's Legal Elite" by Virginia Business magazine; one of "America's Leading Lawyers for Business Law" by Chambers USA; and he has been designated as among the “Best Lawyers in America" by Woodward/White, Inc. every year since 2003.
