This week, Jay and I return for a wide-ranging discussion on some of the week’s top compliance and ethics related stories, including:
- Halliburton settles long standing FCPA enforcement action. See SEC Cease and Desist Order. Also see SEC Press Release.
- US authorities end five-year foreign bribery investigation into IBM. See article by Sam Rubenfeld in WSJ Risk and Compliance Journal.
- DOJ closes FCPA probe of Newton Mining without action. See article by Sam Rubenfeld in WSJ Risk and Compliance Journal.

- DOJ finally obtains a conviction in FCPA case. See Dick Cassin’s article in the FCPA Blog.
- Everything Compliance-Episode 15 is out. Topics include The right to be forgotten in the EU; Big data and compliance-the EU regulators wrap anti-trust issues into data privacy; a wrap up for the 6 years since the Bribery Act came into existence; and the troubling inclination of UK regulators to engage in burden shifting in anti-bribery cases; Jesse Eisinger’s book, The Chickenshit Club; with the lack of US leadership, will other countries ramp up anti-corruption enforcement?
