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

This post [2] highlights the DOJ’s prosecution of individuals for FCPA violations in 2017 and historically and this post [3] 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 [4], 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 [5].

This post [6] rounds up other FCPA and related developments.
