Matthew J. Feeley, a Litigation shareholder in Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Miami office, was featured in the "Great Case" section of BC Law Magazine's Spring/Summer 2011 issue.
The article, "On the Take," details the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigation into a foreign liquid natural gas consortium and Feeley's role in the defense.
"In the TSKJ case, at the same time we were navigating certain cultural barriers and conducting a factual investigation to try to figure out what had happened, we were also analyzing from a legal standpoint the reach of the FCPA," Feely explained.
