The FCPA Flash podcast provides in an audio format the same fresh, candid, and informed commentary about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related topics as readers have come to expect from the written posts on FCPA Professor.
This FCPA Flash episode is a conversation with Colby Smith (Debevoise & Plimpton). Smith is the Co-Chair of the firm’s Securities Litigation Practice and his practice focuses primarily on securities class action and derivative litigation, SEC and other regulatory enforcement matters, and internal corporate investigations, including those arising under the FCPA.
In the episode, Smith discusses the prominence of disgorgement in SEC FCPA enforcement actions, the questionable use of the disgorgement remedy in FCPA enforcement actions that did not charge or find anti-bribery violations, and notable and disputed issues that arise in SEC FCPA enforcement actions.
