FCPA Flash Podcast – A Conversation With Laura Brookover Regarding The CFTC’s Recent Enforcement Advisory

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 Laura Brookover [2] (Covington & Burling and former lawyer in the Enforcement Division of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission – CFTC). The podcast concerns the CFTC’s recent enforcement advisory concerning “violations of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) involving foreign corrupt practices” (see here [3] for the prior post) and during the podcast Brookover discusses: the background of the CFTC and the CEA; why the CFTC may have issued the advisory; what type of conduct involving foreign corrupt practices could fall under the CEA; and various issues associated with CFTC enforcement actions.
