In the Episode, I visit with James Koukios, a partner at Morrison and Foerster in Washington DC. Koukios is a former prosecutor from the Department of Justice who worked in the FCPA Unit. He is back to discuss the firm’s monthly newsletter the Top 10 International Anti-Corruption Developments for September 2019. In this podcast we discuss:
- What are you key takeaways from the 3 fiscal year ending FCPA enforcement actions from the SEC?
- Restitution is becoming for a bigger topic in FCPA settlements. What is restitution in the FCPA context? Why the different rulings in Och-Ziff and PetroEcuador? Should companies start to consider this in settlement negotiations?
- SEC Chair Laments Perceived Lack of International Anti-Corruption Enforcement Efforts-What is (or was) going on?
