FCPA and Jail - Are Corporate Officers Really at Risk?

Alerts / November 17, 2016

On Oct. 31, James McClung, a former Louis Berger International Inc. executive, self-surrendered to the Bureau of Prisons to begin his year-and-a-day sentence for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). McClung, the senior vice president for the New Jersey-based construction management firm, was responsible for the company’s operations in India and later in Vietnam. McClung and another former Louis Berger executive pleaded guilty in June 2015 to FCPA charges in connection with a scheme to bribe foreign officials in India and Vietnam to secure their assistance in awarding business to the company. McClung was sentenced on July 7, 2016 in New Jersey federal court by District Judge Mary L. Cooper.
