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 Philip Rohlik (Debevoise & Plimpton) regarding the recent Dun & Bradstreet enforcement action. As highlighted in this previous post, the enforcement action was unremarkable from a settlement amount perspective, yet serves as a microcosm of the many problems with FCPA enforcement and in the podcast Rohlik: questions just what criminal charges the DOJ actually declined and discusses other issues relevant to the so-called declination; discusses the concerning internal controls standard the SEC invoked in the enforcement action; and takes issue with certain commentary regarding the enforcement action.
