This week, Jay and I return for a wide-ranging discussion on some of the week’s top compliance and ethics related stories, including:

  1. HSBC monitor report protected from release. See article in Reuters by clicking here.
  2. The Odebrecht scandal continues to resonate across South America. See Dick Cassin’s post in the FCPA Blog.
  3. The first half of 2017 has brought the final resolutions of only two FCPA matters from the new administration, but they were both declinations. Both declinations have significantly strengthened the FCPA Pilot Program as a clear path forward for every company that finds itself in FCPA hot water. See Tom’s article in Compliance Week.
  4. Roy Snell says it’s not who’s who but who gets it. See article in SCCE Compliance and Ethics Blog.
  5. Tom announces the rollout of the Compliance Podcast Network. It includes This Week in FCPA, FCPA Compliance Report, Compliance Report-International Edition, 12 O’Clock High, Unfair and Unbalanced, Compliance into the Weeds, Across the Board, Everything Compliance, One Month to a More Effective Compliance Program. See Tom’s article in the FCPA Compliance and Ethics Blog.
  6. The next Everything Compliance podcast is in production. Topics include Walter Shaub’s departure from OGE and does it even matter? Jesse Eisinger’s book The Chickenshit Club; the SFO, UK Bribery Act and the Rolls-Royce enforcement action; differences in DPA practice in the US & UK; Trump Administration & FCPA enforcement; EU’s GDPR; and Hui Chen’s departure from Justice Department; both her public rebuke of Trump, and the substance of how she believes her guidance has been mis-interpreted. Part I will go up on Thursday, July 20.
