In this special 5-part podcast series on the FCPA Compliance Report, I am considering the Airbus international anti-corruption enforcement action from a variety of perspectives from some of the top world’s top compliance practitioners and commentators on compliance. They include, Jay Rosen-Mr. Monitor; Mike Volkov-Editor of Corruption Crime and Compliance; Jonathan Armstrong-partner at Cordery Compliance in London; Cecilia Fellouse-Guenkel-Secretary General, The Circle of Compliance and Tom Fox-the Compliance Evangelist. In today’s Episode 1, Jay Rosen considers the FCPA enforcement involving Airbus.

Highlights include:

  • What was the procedural history of the enforcement action?
  • Why companies who do business with the government need robust compliance.
  • Airbus was clearly incentivized to cooperate with the DOJ.
