Praise for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: A Practical Resource for Managers and Executives
"Aaron Murphy's book is absolutely fantastic. As a seasoned lawyer and compliance professional, having worked for fortune 100 companies with global operations for many years and being an FCPA expert myself, I have never come across a more detailed yet easy to read book on FCPA. It contains practical advice and provides examples that are put into context, that the reader can easily relate to and that take into consideration different cultures and customs. A must read for any individual/ organization doing business abroad."
"This book is essential reading for anyone conducting business outside US borders. Executives, managers, sales, marketing, finance, and legal professionals will find sound practical advice to protect themselves and their companies from FCPA violations when operating globally. Much more than a general survey, this book offers scores of real world examples and serves as an easy-to-read, how-to resource for employees at all levels of a company. It will be a valuable reference tool for many years to come."
"If you are a manager involved in any kind of international dealings—which is to say, if you work for any major firm in today’s global marketplace—you need to study Aaron Murphy’s comprehensive, precise and highly readable analysis of life under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Few FCPA violations are intentional, yet the consequences even of unwitting violations can be drastic for you, your colleagues, and your firm. Murphy’s book shows why business practices perfectly acceptable at home are federal crimes in other settings, how to think your way through ambiguous situations, and—perhaps most important—when to get expert advice. It is a field guide to a world where authority and discretion are all too often up for sale, and a resource that will help you avoid trouble—and even succeed—within the bounds of this crucial yet little-understood legislation."
"Every businessperson working in the emerging markets should read and understand the way in which their actions and behaviour may fall subject to the FCPA. This book is a great practical guide to a complex law."
"Most business managers have heard of the FCPA, but few truly understand the breadth of the FCPA as applied to real-world scenarios. Murphy, an FCPA practitioner with extensive real-world experience, provides an easy to read FCPA handbook for business managers. This book is essential reading for business managers looking to develop and implement risk management policies and procedures in this era of aggressive FCPA enforcement."
