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 Hannibal Kemerer (Squire Patton Boggs). As former chief counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Crime and Drugs Subcommittee, Kemerer was the lead lawyer for Senator Arlen Specter and has unique insight into why Senator Specter held an FCPA oversight hearing in November 2010 (see here for the hearing transcript, here for the video). During the podcast, Kemerer discusses why Senator Specter held the hearing, what Senator Specter hoped to accomplish in the hearing, and whether the goals of the hearing were actually accomplished. Now in private practice, Kemerer also discusses the difference between approaching FCPA issues from a a private practitioner standpoint compared to a public policy standpoint.
