This chart identifies the number of bribery schemes per year that rely on third-party intermediaries such as agents, consultants, or contractors. Data is culled from FCPA Groups in order to avoid double counting that may otherwise occur when the same or affiliated corporate entities are sued in separate enforcement actions based on the same underlying misconduct. Data is aggregated by filing date, not date of resolution. The data used to generate this graphic were culled from publicly available documents filed in connection with the enforcement actions, and may not reflect all third-party intermediaries involved in the bribery scheme.
