Challenging the DOJ's Accomplice Liability Strategy for Reaching Foreign Conduct in International Bribery Schemes

    View Authors November 2018

    Partner Colin Jennings and senior attorney Steven Delchin co-authored an article recently for Practicing Law Institute’s (PLI) premier issue of PLI Current: White Collar Practice Journal.

    Their article, “Challenging the DOJ’s Accomplice Liability Strategy for Reaching Foreign Conduct in International Bribery Schemes,” explores the impacts (and limits) of the Second Circuit’s United States v.  Hoskins decision and analyzes the legal and jurisdictional obstacles facing the DOJ’s Money Laundering Control Act (MLCA) accomplice liability theory. It ultimately provides a roadmap on how foreign defendants (and international companies facing FCPA-related risks) should fight back against the DOJ’s aggressive use of the MLCA in international bribery cases.

    PLI Current: White Collar Practice Journal will be published several times a year and will feature commentary and analysis of developments in the law relating to financial crime from leading experts in this field, including practicing lawyers, judges, scholars and others.
