Expect Corruption Crackdown to Widen, Intensify

"Companies and financial firms that are potentially subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other anti-corruption regimes should expect more of the enforcement crackdown they have seen in recent years, except in greater quantity and intensity, two former U.S. government officials said last week. The ex-officials, Cheryl Scarboro, a law partner at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, and Greg Andres, a partner at the law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell, respectively headed the Securities and Exchange Commission Enforcement Division FCPA unit and the Department of Justice Criminal Division fraud section. They spoke at an FCPA and anti-corruption seminar at the New York City Bar Association."

Legions of Lawyers May Soon Be Free From NY Office Rule

"Tens of thousands of New York-admitted, nonresident lawyers could soon be relieved of a Civil War-era requirement to keep an office inside the state if a skeptical federal appeals court prevails on top state judges to relax rules that experts say dissuade many attorneys in nearby states from taking Empire State clients….The federal appellate court made the request after U.S. District Judge Lawrence E. Kahn sided with attorney Ekaterina Schoenefeld on her claim that the rule, which dates back to 1862, violates the U.S. Constitution’s privileges and immunities clause….She has strong allies, including the New York City Bar Association, which has long called for changing the laws."
