This Week On FCPA Professor


FCPA Professor has been described as “the Wall Street Journal concerning all things FCPA-related,” and “the most authoritative source for those seeking to understand and apply the FCPA.”

Set forth below are the topics discussed this week on FCPA Professor.

This FCPA Flash podcast episode is a conversation with the lawyer who successfully represented “victims” of Och-Ziff’s bribery scheme – resulting in a $138 million restitution award for his clients.

For your listening enjoyment here – a recent episode of the In-House Warrior podcast in which I discuss: how compliance professionals need to gain comfort with FCPA uncertainty; FCPA enforcement during a Biden administration; whether the FCPA has been successful in achieving its objectives; what the “b” word (bribery) means; and how corporate risk aversion is, in part, part of the reason for the current FCPA enforcement landscape.

As highlighted here, former Goldman Sachs executive Roger Ng filed a motion to dismiss arguing: that the DOJ’s case against him suffers from several factual errors and legal deficiencies; that the DOJ scripted a co-defendants guilty plea; and that Goldman’s DPA was entered into for reasons of risk aversion and otherwise compromises his ability to defend himself.

This post highlights FCPA enforcement actions concerning conduct, in whole or in part, in Turkey.

In a recent speech, Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Rabbitt touched upon a number of white-collar crime topics (see here).
