The FCPA Flash podcast provides in an audio format the same fresh, candid, and informed commentary about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related topics as readers have come to expect from written posts on FCPA Professor.
This FCPA Flash podcast episode is a conversation with Matthew Boyden. Boyden recently joined R. McConnell Group (a boutique law firm in Houston specializing in FCPA compliance and investigations among other things). Prior to joining the firm, Boyden was a Special Assistant US Attorney in the S.D. of Texas and a U.S. Postal Inspector with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. A close read of certain recent FCPA enforcement actions (Rolls Royce and Polycom for instance) demonstrate that the Postal Inspection Service plays a role in FCPA investigations and during the podcast Boyden describes what the U.S. Postal Inspection Service does and how it interacts with other federal government agencies in investigating and prosecuting FCPA offenses.
