Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. This week Matt and Tom take a deep dive into the first FCPA enforcement action involving a company in 2021, the Amec Foster Wheeler global anti-corruption enforcement action. Some of the issues we consider are:

  • What were the underlying facts?
  • Were red flags missed, consciously avoided or outright ignored?
  • Where was compliance?
  • How corrupt was the culture of Foster Wheeler?
  • What does this mean for compliance going forward?
