January 2018 – Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP Partner Robert Edward Dugdale helped explain the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) recently released Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Corporate Enforcement Policy at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) first Southern California Regional Conference. SCCE is a member-based association for compliance professionals, and it noted in its report on the presentation that the new enforcement policy is a “sea-change in FCPA enforcement.”
Mr. Dugdale is former federal prosecutor who served more than 19 years as a trial attorney and supervisor of some of the most significant cases prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California. He was the Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney for Trials, Integrity, and Professionalism and, prior to that, the Chief of the Criminal Division, a position in which he oversaw the work of approximately 200 federal prosecutors in the second largest U.S. Attorney’s Office in the nation. He joined John M. McCoy III, Deputy General Counsel and Group Chief Compliance Officer, 21st Century Fox, at the SCCE conference in explaining the language of the DOJ’s most recent memo on FCPA enforcement.
