This Week On FCPA Professor

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.

This post [1] highlights how a Brazilian telecom company (Telefonica Brasil) hosted Brazilian government officials for soccer tournaments in Brazil and then five years later the U.S. government collects $4.1 million in an FCPA enforcement action.

This post [2] highlights yet another example of the SEC’s inconsistent enforcement of the FCPA’s books and records and internal controls provisions.

This post [3] uses a current spending spree in Africa among hotel companies to highlight FCPA enforcement actions concerning building buildings and the like.

As highlighted here [4], given this typical dynamic in corporate FCPA enforcement actions, a recent judicial decision, while outside the FCPA context, is FCPA relevant in that the judge stated that she was “deeply troubled” by the DOJ’s outsourcing of investigations.

As highlighted here [5], yet another FCPA-related securities fraud lawsuit was dismissed.
