In recent years, government enforcement agencies in the United States have sought increasingly to apply U.S. laws to address the foreign conduct of foreign companies. Japanese companies have been among those that publicly have received such attention: during the last two years alone, Japanese companies have paid criminal fines totaling hundreds of millions of dollars to settle price fixing offenses and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The current wave of aggressive enforcement of U.S. laws against foreign companies promises to continue and, in fact, is likely to expand to include new areas. This program addresses the widening scope of government enforcement actions against foreign companies in the U.S.—including government efforts to enforce the FCPA, antitrust laws, international trade laws, money laundering laws, and fraud statutes, among others—and discusses current and future implications for Japanese companies doing business in the U.S.
