Advising Representatives of Foreign Governments, Political Parties, and Entities (FARA)

Increased scrutiny and enforcement activity by the U.S. Department of Justice concerning the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) has given rise to concerns for the regulated community on when and how to comply with this statute, as well as increased confusion regarding its relationship to the Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA). FARA registration and reporting can be complex and impose a heavy administrative burden. Caplin & Drysdale’s Political Law Group has an established practice representing individuals, lobbyists, consulting firms, advocacy groups, public affairs firms, political consultancies, and think tanks in addressing their FARA compliance obligations.  Please visit our blog site www.FARA.us for more information.

Illustrations of our work for clients include:

  • Responding to inquiries and document requests from the Department of Justice’s FARA Unit;

  • Resolving government enforcement actions related to FARA compliance;

  • Preparing and submitting retroactive FARA filings;

  • Conducting internal investigations concerning potential FARA issues; and

  • Establishing tailored compliance programs to help lobbying firms, public affairs firms, and political consultancies efficiently manage FARA’s compliance obligations.
