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 written posts on FCPA Professor.
This FCPA Flash episode is a conversation with Moe Fodeman (who along with colleagues at Wilson Sonsini) successfully represented certain investors who were deemed “victims” of Och-Ziff’s bribery and secured a $138 million restitution order under the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act. During the podcast, Fodeman discusses the chronology leading up to the restitution claim, how (and why) the DOJ resisted “victim” status for his clients, and what impact, if any, the restitution award may have on future actions.
