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 Adriaen Morse. Morse is among a small number of individuals who has experienced the FCPA from three different vantage points (counsel in the SEC’s enforcement division, a partner at international law firms and currently running his own firm, and leading the litigation and compliance departments of two Fortune 200 public companies as chief litigation counsel and chief ethics and compliance officer).
During the podcast, Morse responds to the following questions: (i) what specific vantage point of a SEC FCPA enforcement attorney do in-house FCPA counsel and outside FCPA counsel fail to understand or appreciate; (ii) what specific vantage point of an in-house FCPA counsel do SEC FCPA enforcement attorneys and outside FCPA counsel fail to understand or appreciate; (iii) what specific vantage point of an outside FCPA counsel do SEC FCPA enforcement attorneys and in-house FCPA counsel fail to understand or appreciate; (iv) which job category of the three is the most difficult and why: (v) which job category of the three can best advance the objectives of the FCPA?
I highly recommend the podcast as well as this previous podcast and this previous FCPA Professor post in which Claudius Sokenu and William Jacobson (individuals who also have the trifecta of FCPA experience) respond to the same questions.
