Amid continuing uncertainty about FCPA enforcement in the Trump administration, regulators are highlighting the global community’s dedication to anti-corruption enforcement. At the same time, they are defending the U.S. regime’s transparency and reach, but with a more business-focused frame of reference. Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Trevor McFadden stressed international coordination and cooperation in a recent speech in São Paolo, Brazil. Andrew Weissmann, head of the DOJ’s Fraud Division, and Andrew Calamari, Director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office, echoed that international focus, and discussed enforcement trends – including some numbers from the first year of the Pilot Program – and corporate concerns at a recent PLI panel.
