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 episode is a conversation with Samer Korkor who left the DOJ’s FCPA Unit in May 2019. Korkor is currently a law professor at the David Clarke School of Law at the University of District Columbia and his other professional experiences include: Counsel to the DOJ’s Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division, Counsel to the DOJ’s Deputy Assistant Attorney General on International Affairs, Special Assistant United States Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Washington D.C., and as an attorney in DOJ’s Office of International Affairs. During the podcast, Korkor discusses the framework for transnational cooperation and multi-jurisdictional resolutions – areas of significant importance to FCPA and other white collar investigations and prosecutions. Korkor’s comments happen to be particularly relevant to recently initiated Congressional impeachment inquiries as Korkor explains how the DOJ typically reaches out to foreign governments for investigative assistance.
