As sure as the sun rises in the east and dogs bark – and following a well traveled career path – DOJ FCPA Unit Chief Christopher Cestaro is joining a law firm (WilmerHale) for an FCPA practice. (See here).
According to the WilmerHale release:
“As head of the FCPA Unit, Mr. Cestaro oversaw all the Justice Department’s FCPA investigations, prosecutions and resolutions in the US. He supervised many of the government’s most challenging and high-profile cross-border investigations, involving every significant industry sector, and he oversaw investigations of individuals at the highest levels of companies and government, including corporate board members, executives and senior foreign government officials. He led the unit at a time when enforcement authorities in other nations increasingly launched corruption probes and enforcement actions, requiring careful international coordination and diplomacy—a shift from the past, when such actions were mainly the province of US authorities acting alone. As a result, more companies now confront complex cross-border FCPA investigations and negotiations.”
