The Final Chapter of Operation Car Wash: Key Takeaways and Implications for US Businesses in Brazil


In February 2021, Brazil's anti-corruption unit tasked with leading the massive, multi-year Operation Car Wash (or “Lava Jato") investigation was officially dismantled. One month later, Brazil's Supreme Court ruled that former judge Sergio Moro, who presided over the case, was biased in his rulings in former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's corruption trial. What does this final chapter of Operation Car Wash mean for US companies operating or investing in Brazil?

To help unravel the Operation Car Wash saga, we have assembled a panel of lawyers to provide the latest news from Brazil, discuss how these developments may shape future enforcement actions and explore how Operation Car Wash and its aftermath may impact investment opportunities in Brazil going forward.

Topics will include:

  • An overview and impact assessment of recent events, including the ruling involving Judge Moro
  • Ramifications for the Brazil enforcement landscape and the global enforcement community
  • FCPA compliance considerations for companies doing business in Brazil
  • Looking ahead: Brazil's business and economic outlook after Operation Car Wash
