In the Episode, I visit with Bryan Sillaman, Managing Partner of the Paris office of Hughes Hubbard & Reed. In this podcast we discuss the French portion of the Airbus anti-corruption enforcement action.

Some of the highlights include:

  1. Can you describe the French enforcement authorities and the law under which they investigated and then issued the Judicial Public Interest Agreement with Airbus?
  2. What is the French Blocking Statute and what role did it play in the investigation?
  3. Why is this enforcement action a milestone in French anti-corruption enforcement? (If you believe it is)
  4. What was the final penalty assessed by the French Court?
  5. How will the monitorship over Airbus work in practice?
  6. What does the French Judgment say about or do for the PNF?
