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.

As highlighted here, a Swedish appellate court recently affirmed a trial court decision and concluded that a key figure in several FCPA enforcement actions was not a “public official” (even though in the FCPA enforcement actions – which resulted in approximately $1.7 billion in settlements – the U.S. government maintained that the individual was a “foreign official”).

Former Braskem CEO Jose Carlos Grubisich was recently sentenced to 20 months – although the judge did reject the DOJ’s 60 month sentencing recommendation. (See here).

As highlighted here, the 5th Circuit recently interpreted a key term for the Supreme Court’s Liu disgorgement decision.

This post summarizes a recent speech by SEC Director of Enforcement Gurbir Grewal on a variety of FCPA relevant topics.
