James M. Koukios
White-Collar Defense, FCPA + Anti-Corruption, and Internal Investigations
In The News
The Wall Street Journal asked 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, for his predictions for FCPA enforcement in 2016. Mr. Koukios predicted that DOJ will bring “fewer but larger” cases and cases that emphasize “that the company failed to self-report, failed to cooperate, or a combination.” Mr. Koukios also predicted that the Securities and Exchange Commission will continue to bring corporate enforcement actions “that are not accompanied by a parallel DOJ action, such as we saw happen repeatedly [in 2015].”
