Covington’s Chinese Translation of the FCPA Resource Guide
Covington is pleased to offer our Chinese translation of A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“Resource Guide”). The original English version of the Resource Guide was issued in November 2012 by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission and stands as the definitive guidance document from the United States Government regarding its enforcement of the FCPA. We hope the Chinese translation of the Resource Guide will be a valuable resource for the anti-corruption community.
- Covington drafted an analysis of the Resource Guide, which is available in English and Chinese.
- More about Covington’s Global Anti-Corruption Practice can be found in English and Chinese.

About Covington’s Anti-Corruption Practice
Covington has one of the most experienced and highly ranked anti-corruption teams in the world. Our global anti-corruption practice and several of our lawyers have been recognized in numerous rankings publications, including Chambers Global, Chambers USA, Chambers UK, Chambers Asia-Pacific, and Legal 500.
The world’s most sophisticated business organizations routinely turn to Covington for anti-corruption advice and investigative assistance. Our lawyers have handled matters in dozens of countries around the globe, including in Brazil, China, Eastern Europe, Germany, India, Indonesia, Mexico, the Middle East, Russia, South Korea, and the UK. We are one of the few firms in the world with lawyers who recently held senior positions in both the U.S. Department of Justice -- including former Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division Lanny Breuer, who spearheaded the publication of the Resource Guide -- and the U.K. Serious Fraud Office, which enables us to offer highly sophisticated advice regarding the US and UK enforcement environments. We also are one of the few firms in the world to have a senior lawyer resident in China, Eric Carlson, who focuses on anti-corruption counseling and investigations. Our counseling practice is distinguished by our ability to translate nuanced legal analysis into practical advice that makes sense to business clients. Across both counseling and investigations, our anti-corruption team is able to provide “24-hour” real-time support to our clients with seamless coordination across our global network of offices and local law firm relationships in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
