FCPA Flash Podcast Must Listen: A Conversation With Recently Departed DOJ FCPA Unit Assistant Chief Ephraim Wernick Regarding The Walmart Monitor, The Long Time Periods Associated With FCPA Scrutiny, And Other Issues

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 Ephraim (Fry) Wernick [2] who recently joined Vinson & Elkins after departing from the DOJ as Assistant Chief of the FCPA Unit. While Wernick was not involved in the Walmart matter during his tenure at the DOJ, he has plenty to say about the enforcement action including the imposition of a monitor during the podcast. Wernick also discusses the long time periods associated with FCPA scruitny and highlights two things about the DOJ’s FCPA unit and its enforcement program that he believes are not well understood or appreciated by the business community or FCPA bar. In short, the podcast is a must listen.
