FCPA Flash – A Conversation With Michael Levy Regarding The SEC’s “Unlawful” Enforcement Of The FCPA’s Accounting Provisions

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 Michael Levy [2] (Paul Hastings). Levy recently authored a dandy article titled “The SEC’s Unlawful and Dangerous Expansion of the Exchange Act [3]” in which he asserts that in certain recent enforcement actions the SEC has expanded the FCPA’s books and records and internal controls provisions in an “unlawful” manner and in a way that gives the SEC “capacious authority to regulate by enforcement almost any aspect of the operations of any issuer.” During the podcast, Levy elaborates on these issues and provides suggestions for how SEC enforcement can get back on track given that no issuer has ever put the SEC to its burden of proof in the FCPA’s 40-year history.
