"I Fully Expect That The Number of FCPA Prosecutions Will Continue To Rise"

Lanny Breuer delivered these words today before the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Who is Lanny Breuer?

He is the Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division.

When he speaks about the FCPA, one ought take notice.

Breuer's full remarks can be found here (FCPA remarks begin at pg. 5).


We keep hearing about those 100+ FCPA investigations in the pipeline, but the government closed the books on its fiscal year yesterday with a relatively quite September.

The new fiscal year has ushered in change though as the DOJ unveiled a slick new website (check it out here). What logo will DOJ assign to the next FCPA release ... a calculator, a flying eagle, the scales of justice, a shield?

My bet is on the calculator ... for a FCPA books and records violation.
