In a two-part series published by The FCPA Blog, government enforcement partner Amanda Raad and government enforcement associate Sean Seelinger examine anti-corruption developments affecting the real estate industry. The first article examines recent regulatory activity in the real estate sector, including public and non-public investigations. The second article examines strategies for handling real estate compliance risks. The authors explain that, “While enforcement actions and legal liability are certainly compelling risks, the reality of holding an asset tainted by corruption extends much further. The accompanying financial and reputational damage from investigations, assets which cannot be sold, and the mere appearance of impropriety can destroy investment value.”
