FCPA Flash – A Conversation With David Ogden

The FCPA Flash podcast [1] 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 the written posts on FCPA Professor.

This FCPA Flash episode [2] is a conversation with David Ogden [3] (WilmerHale). Previously, Ogden served as the Deputy Attorney General of the U.S. and as an Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division of the DOJ.

In the episode, Ogden elaborates on his recent speech (see here [4] for the prior post) in which he criticized the DOJ’s “leverage based” enforcement approach. Specifically, Ogden discusses a wide range of negative consequences which flow from the DOJ’s enforcement approach.

The podcast is a must listen for anyone who values the rule of law and effective law enforcement.

FCPA Flash is sponsored by the Red Flag Group [5]. The Red Flag Group assists companies in developing and maintaining efficient and effective corporate governance and compliance programs, and has a proven track record in providing integrity due diligence investigations in 194 countries.
