John Davis Comments on Recent Bourke FCPA Conviction in Inside U.S. Trade

FCPA Verdict Sets Up Compliance Example For Global Investors

Inside U.S. Trade

John Davis comments on the recent Bourke FCPA conviction. Davis said the case gives company compliance officials a "much clearer example" than was available up to now to illustrate to senior managers that they can go to jail for failure to perform due diligence. In addition, Davis commented, the Bourke verdict could even cause some investors to shy away from investments they would have otherwise made, but said the case does not mean an investor "can't invest in areas with high corruption."
