Prince was undoubtedly a musical genius, but unfortunately he may have made some costly mistakes when it came to estate planning.  He died without a known Will, ...

  • Lessons Learned From The Novartis FCPA Settlement

        Last spring, Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis AG paid $25 million to the SEC to settle Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) charges relating to its operations in China.  According to the SEC’s internal administrative order, Novartis subsidiaries in China bribed government-affiliated doctors and healthcare professionals—who qualify as “foreign officials” under the FCPA—to increase sales of their products.  The Swiss company and its Chinese subsidiaries are subject to the FCPA’s jurisdiction because Novartis trades on the New York Stock Exchange. The FCPA is an important but little understood U.S. statute that can severely impact any business that operates internationally.  The FCPA prohibits U.S. ...

  • 3 Steps to Take After an Unsuccessful Negotiation

    Over lunch last month, a friend and fellow attorney was obsessing over a recent negotiation that hadn’t gone well.  I watched his meal get cold as he shared the cringe-worthy story. His client was buying out his partner’s shares in their company, and the negotiations had been smooth sailing in the weeks leading up to the closing.  The business breakup was amicable, my friend had dealt with opposing counsel on a prior matter, and the agreements had been drafted without too much pushback.  At the closing table, however, all hell suddenly broke loose.  Seemingly overnight, his client had decided that he ...
