Episode 19 — 2017 FCPA Year in Review
FCPA enforcement continued in 2017 with an increased emphasis on individual enforcement. Despite early questions as to the new administration’s commitment to FCPA enforcement, the Justice Department and the SEC continued to push aggressive enforcement cases, building on well-established relationships with global law enforcement partners.
In a significant development, the Justice Department issued a new FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy, which created a declination presumption for companies that voluntarily disclose FCPA violations, fully cooperate and remediate their compliance programs.
In this episode, Michael Volkov discusses the FCPA Year in Review and significant trends.
