In The News
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 regarding criticism of corporate deferred and non-prosecution agreements that may not have been made public. Drawing on his long experience with corporate prosecutions, Mr. Koukios stated, “I do not recall any corporate NPAs in which we were involved that did not go public. In the FCPA Unit in particular, we put every corporate resolution—whether NPA, DPA, or guilty plea— going back to 1977 on our website.” Mr. Koukios noted that he pushed for similar transparency with respect to corporate resolutions by the Fraud Section’s Securities and Financial Fraud Unit, which handled the LIBOR and FOREX investigations.
