In this episode, Michael Goldberg (Baker Botts who represented Cobalt International Energy in connection with several instances of FCPA scrutiny) discusses his client's FCPA scrutiny, the reasons for his client's refusal to settle, the negative effects Cobalt experienced despite prevailing, and how the world of investigations is broken and who shares the blame.
In this episode, Michael Levy (Paul Hastings) discusses his article "The SEC's Unlawful and Dangerous Expansion of the Exchange Act" regarding off-the-rails SEC FCPA enforcement and provides suggestions for how 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.
In this episode, Bruce Yannett (Debevoise & Plimpton) identifies and elaborates on his list of the most notable issues from 2017: (i) the DOJ's "FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy" and implications for self-reporting; (ii) international enforcement and the continuing rise of coordinated settlements; and (iii) the fallout from Kokesh v. SEC and how to balance SEC, DOJ and international enforcement and statutes of limitation.
