This Week On FCPA Professor

ThisWeekPost

FCPA Professor has been described as “the Wall Street Journal concerning all things FCPA-related,” and “the most authoritative source for those seeking to understand and apply the FCPA.”

Set forth below are the topics discussed this week on FCPA Professor.

As highlighted here, in a recent Fourth Circuit decision the court agreed with Walmart on privilege issues relevant to an FCPA inquiry.

As highlighted in this post, Congress knows how to draft legislation that expressly captures state-owned or state-controlled enterprises (something Congress failed to do in the FCPA).

Often times, discussion of complex legal or public policy issues is clouded by simplistic rhetoric and narrative spinning. Just don’t bribe. A zero tolerance for bribery. Sound good and to be sure in certain Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement actions the simplistic rhetoric and narrative is actually true.  Yet in many other FCPA enforcement actions – and the FCPA compliance discussion generally – such cliches are overly simplistic because, as highlighted in this post, it all depends on what the “b” word means.

This post, once again reboots a long-standing FCPA reform proposal, this time in the aftermath of a disclosure by Hertz.

This post rounds up other FCPA or related developments.

How much do you know about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act? Let’s find out in this week’s FCPA challenge.
