Ivonne Mena King

Ivonne Mena King is a partner and litigation lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP. Ms. King regularly represents multinational corporations and their executives in white collar criminal cases and internal investigations, especially in connection with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and government contracts. She is a member of the firm's Government Enforcement, Compliance & White Collar Defense and Latin America Practices and Life Sciences Industry Team.

Ms. King has served as the lead lawyer on over 15 internal investigations spanning 46 countries throughout the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Latin America. As a fluent Spanish speaker, Ms. King has led a team of Spanish-speaking lawyers in six FCPA investigations in Latin America alone, garnering recognition by Chambers USA (2014), which reported that the firm is “[p]articularly noted for its presence in providing counsel on FCPA matters to Latin American clients.” Ms. King represents clients from a wide variety of industries, including pharmaceutical, medical devices, defense, technology, consumer, oil, energy, and entertainment.

With government enforcement matters, the biggest victories are the ones where the company ultimately resolves the inquiry without a published settlement involving fines or penalties. On many matters, with many different agencies, Ms. King has served as lead lawyer and obtained such a result.
