James Koukios, former Senior Deputy Chief of the Department of Justice Criminal Division Fraud Section and partner in the firm’s Securities Litigation, Enforcement & White-Collar Defense Practice Group, was quoted for questioning the DOJ’s new tactic in emphasizing full-cooperation in criminal investigations, stating “Why cooperate if there's a good chance that [a company is] going to be deemed to have not fully cooperated? How are we supposed to deal with DOJ about whether a particular person did anything wrong? Now it seems if there's a disagreement we could get bupkus.”
