    Welcome to the award-winning FCPA Compliance Report, the longest-running podcast in compliance. In this special edition, Tom welcomes Jessica Nall, a partner at Baker McKenzie who leads the firm's West Coast investigations and compliance practice, and Maria Piontkovska, a Senior Associate in the same practice group.
    We deeply dive into their article about the recent speeches by Department of Justice representatives at the ABA White Collar Conference on the new DOJ whistleblower program, AI, data protection, and intellectual property protection.
    Jessica Nall and Maria Piontkovska are prominent legal professionals specializing in white-collar defense and corporate investigations. Jessica, a seasoned attorney with over 20 years of experience, leads Baker McKenzie’s white-collar practice in California, and Maria is a skilled US white-collar attorney originally from Ukraine.
    Both regard the ABA White Collar Conference as an essential platform for the defense bar, government investigators, and compliance leaders to gather for discussions and networking. Nall sees the conference as vital for disseminating new compliance expectations and enforcement trends announced by government officials. At the same time, Piontkovska highlights the importance of the direct line of communication with these officials, providing insights straight from the source.
    Their perspectives on the conference are shaped by their extensive experiences in the field and drive their contributions to the discussions and policies related to white-collar defense and compliance.

    Mary Inman on DOJ Whistleblower Bounty Program

    Mary Inman on DOJ Whistleblower Bounty Program

    Welcome to the award-winning FCPA Compliance Report, the longest running podcast in compliance. In this edition of the FCPA Compliance Report, Tom welcomes back Mary Inman, partner at the newly formed Whistleblower Partners LLP. They talk about the new Department of Justice (DOJ) initiative to pay a bounty to whistleblowers.
    Mary Inman is a well-recognized authority in the realm of whistleblowing programs. In this episode, she focuses on DOJ whistleblower program. Her perspective on the program is cautiously optimistic, acknowledging the potential gains in encouraging whistleblowers to disclose information about financial crimes and corruption. However, she has expressed concerns about certain aspects of the program’s design, such as excluding culpable whistleblowers and limiting the type of information that can be provided.
    These viewpoints stem from her extensive experience and deep understanding of the complexities involved in implementing effective whistleblower programs. Drawing from her expertise, Inman also emphasizes the need for confidentiality and anonymity for whistleblowers, similar to the SEC program, suggesting that while the DOJ program is a positive step, careful consideration and potential revisions are required to ensure its effectiveness and fairness.
    Key Highlights:

    Financial Crime Whistleblower Reward Initiative

    Promoting Transparency Through Compliance Officer Resignations

    Whistleblower Protection for Mental Well-being

    Jonathan Wilson on the NSBU Decision

    Jonathan Wilson on the NSBU Decision

    Welcome to the award-winning FCPA Compliance Report, the longest-running podcast in compliance.
    In this edition of the FCPA Compliance Report, Tom welcomes back Jonathan Wilson, one of the country’s top experts on the Corporate Transparency Act. We dissect the court decision in the case of the National Small Business Union, which invalidated the CTA and what it might mean for the law going forward.
    Jonathan Wilson is a well-respected figure in corporate transparency and has established an impressive body of work around the Corporate Transparency Act. He is the founder of FinCEN Report, a company that helps businesses and others comply with the CTA.
    Wilson’s perspective on the Act hinges on his understanding of its legal implications and practical considerations, warning companies that, despite a recent district court decision, they are still required to meet filing obligations. We take a deep dive into the court opinion, how it applied (or misapplied) US law and explain the need for continued compliance with the law.
    Even with this court decision, Wilson’s advice is clear, companies must continue with compliance efforts and fulfill their reporting requirements, as delays will not alter the facts or obligations of the Act. The invalidation of the CTA is only applicable to the named plaintiff in the Northern District of Alabama so all others must continue to comply with the law.
    Key Highlights:

    CTA Overturned—Is Interstate Commerce Affected?

    What is the US National Security Interest?

    Beneficial Owner Disclosure in Money Laundering

    Senate Ratification of International Treaties

    Navigating Legal Compliance in Competitive Business Environment

    Mike Lindsey on The CTA and NSBU Decision

    Mike Lindsey on The CTA and NSBU Decision

    Welcome to the award-winning FCPA Compliance Report, the longest-running podcast in compliance. In this edition of the FCPA Compliance Report, Tom welcomes back Mike Lindsey to discuss the Corporate Transparency Act. In a first for the FCPA Compliance Report, after the episode was recorded but before it was posted, the CTA was declared unconstitutional by a Trump appointed US District Judge. We recorded an addendum to consider this court decision invalidating the law.
    Mike Lindsey, a distinguished corporate and transactional lawyer based at Steinbrecher & Span, has built a solid reputation as an authority on the CTA. Lindsey’s insights into the CTA are influenced by his emphasis on privacy and data security, highlighting the risks correlated with a centralized database potentially accessible via the dark web. From his perspective, the CTA serves as a critical federal law designed to increase transparency around beneficial ownership of corporations and inhibit illegal activities such as money laundering, tax evasion, and fraud. However, Lindsey also questions its effectiveness in disclosing ownership by entities like the Iran Revolutionary Guard. Despite this, he sees the CTA as a ground-breaking move for privately held companies, requiring them to report beneficial owners, something uncommon among small businesses in the United States. Ultimately, Lindsey views the CTA as an essential measure towards impeding financial crimes and enhancing accountability in corporate structures.
    We also discuss the trial court decision in the case of the National Small Business Union, which invalidated the CTA and what it might mean for the law going forward. 
    Key Highlights:

    Beneficial Ownership Disclosure Law

    Key Players in Corporate Decision-Making

    CTA Compliance Impact on Small Businesses

    Federal Database Security Concerns

    Illicit Financial Activities and National Security Measures

    National Small Business Union decision

Well worth your time!

Tom Fox does a great job explaining compliance related things. What he does better than anyone is relate complex compliance topics to the real world. He weaves in stories about his Astros (and my Red Sox) and so much more. Nothing but respect for the FCPA master!
