FCPA Flash – A Conversation With David Bitkower (Former Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General)

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 [1] is a conversation with David Bitkower [2]. Earlier this year, Bitkower left the DOJ where he served as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, the second-highest ranking position in the division. In the podcast, Bitkower (currently a partner at Jenner & Block) discusses his recent article “DOJ Must Beware of Unintended Consequences, As Multilateral Settlements Rise [3].” Other topics discussed include: whether it is ever appropriate for the U.S. to bring FCPA enforcement actions against foreign companies from OECD Convention countries (see here [4] for the prior post), and whether the FCPA (as it approaches 40) has been successful in achieving its stated objectives.

FCPA Flash is sponsored by Kroll [5]. Kroll is trusted by companies and compliance officers worldwide to help prevent, detect, and remediate FCPA challenges with scalable, end-to-end compliance solutions: from high-volume third party screening and automated monitoring, to risk-based due diligence, to complex investigations and monitorships.
