Investigation to aid oil & gas company’s FCPA disclosure

Counsel for a US oil and gas company retained CRA’s team to investigate part of its business in the Gulf of Guinea following FCPA enforcement concerns stemming from the US Department of Justice. The team spent several months interviewing key personnel, reviewing paper and electronic documents, and developing intelligence on several key figures in Africa and other relevant regions. The work proved central to counsel’s advice and in the company’s subsequent disclosure to and settlement with the regulator.
