This recent FCPA Blog post asks “How Big a Problem Is Corporate FCPA Recidivism?” The post asserts that there have been 13 repeat FCPA defendants. However, like a lot of data on the FCPA Blog, this number is wrong.
As highlighted in this prior post, there have been 17 repeat corporate FCPA offenders and the post contained the complete list.
While the difference between 13 and 17 may seem like a trivial matter, the difference is statistically meaningful. Moreover, the FCPA Blog’s calculation of the corporate FCPA recidivism rate is also misleading.
