Praise for The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook, 2013 Edition

Bob Tarun's book is both a highly accessible and deeply authoritative treatment of the FCPA. It has been invaluable to me, as a practitioner, on several occasions. UK and European lawyers will especially appreciate the way in which the main concepts behind the legislation are explained early, in a thoughtful and comprehensive "overview" section."
--Eoin OShea, Partner, Lawrence Graham LLP and Author of The Bribery Act 2010: A Practical Guide"

The Third Edition of The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook is the ultimate security blanket for any practitioner who needs to understand how this important federal criminal statute works and the practical measures needed to assist a client. Its well-organized format provides ready access to the major issues and questions that often require quick responses.
--Vincent J. Connelly, Co-Chair White Collar Criminal Practice, Mayer Brown LLP, Chicago

Drawing upon his substantial international experience, Tarun identifies the critical issues about which all lawyers and investigators covering this field should be aware. His deep understanding of the relevant issues enables him to explain complicated technical concepts and procedures in a way that is understandable and compelling. Armed with Taruns insights and suggested approaches, investigators and lawyers can manage cases in this highly-charged area with confidence. Failing to take advantage of this resource, would be a mistake. 
--Lisa Osofsky, Regulatory Advisor, Control Risks, London and former Deputy General Counsel, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Washington, D.C.

The first edition of The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook was the first to provide a comprehensive investigative and reference text for not only practitioners, but their audience  companies struggling with proactive and reactive compliance with the Act and challenging investigations. The third edition expands the advice and coverage of the prior two, and further succeeds in crossing the chasm between a technical reference text and a highly practical FCPA
investigative and defense guide. The thousand page third edition is a must have book which should be on the desk of anyone
wishing to understand today's application of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as well as the direction prosecutors and regulators are moving in international anticorruption enforcement.
--Joe Zier, retired Partner and Silicon Valley FCPA Practice, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP

"Mr. Tarun continues to share his deep knowledge of the FCPA and related anti-corruption laws in the Third Edition of The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook, which contains over 1000 pages of practical guidance that is grounded in reality and easy to understand. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook provides solutions across the full spectrum of anti-corruption issues and, as my dog-eared copies of the prior editions attest, is a must-have tool for any anti-corruption attorney. The Third Edition of Bob Tarun's The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Handbook is an invaluable anti-corruption resource that will stay on your desk, not in your bookcase.
--Trent J. Sandifur, FCPA and International Anti-Corruption Practice Area Leader, Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP

No one knows the Foreign Corrupt Practice Act better than Bob Tarun. Bob's book is a valuable reference guide for all CPA practitioners and is a must read for all.
--Lori-Ann Beausoleil, Forensic Partner, PwC Canada and Steven Henderson, Forensic Partner, PwC Canada
