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 post continues with the 2017 statistical feast by highlighting various facts and figures regarding DOJ FCPA enforcement.

This post highlights the DOJ’s prosecution of individuals for FCPA violations in 2017 and historically and this post highlights the strange public-private divide when it comes to DOJ individual actions. In other words, since 2006 73% of the individuals charged with criminal FCPA offenses were affiliated with private business organizations even though 77% of corporate DOJ FCPA enforcement actions were against issuers.

National security, so the narrative goes, is a reason why the U.S. enforces the FCPA. However, as highlighted here, as a matter of law and seemingly as a matter of practice, national security is a reason not to enforce the FCPA.

How much do you know about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act? Let’s find out in this week’s FCPA challenge.

This post rounds up other FCPA and related developments.
