FCPA enforcement continues to be in the headlines this last month. In a recent speech, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer warned the business community that FCPA enforcement is “here to stay” and urged businesses to implement compliance programs. In a recent comprehensive settlement with seven companies, the Justice Department once again demonstrated its commitment to aggressive enforcement, collecting nearly $250 million in fines. In its filings, the Justice Department outlined minimum requirements for corporate compliance programs. Finally, at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senators criticized the Justice Department for failing to prosecute individuals for criminal FCPA violations. Please join Mayer Brown partners Thomas Durkin and Michael Volkov as they discuss these developments.
