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.

In resolving the Berko enforcement action, this post asks: what about Liu (the 2020 Supreme Court decision holding that disgorgement is permissible under a relevant statutory scheme only if it is awarded to victims).
