Description: The resolution of an FCPA case with the Department of Justice or the Securities and Exchange Commission will be accompanied by government press releases announcing the conclusion of investigations and media stories indicating that the matter is “over" for the company involved. The company and its counsel may breathe a sigh of relief, but the reality is that even after settling an FCPA investigation with the US government, companies can continue to face serious risks of further liability. In this session we will explore some of the risks of continuing liability including: follow-on enforcement actions by non-US authorities and nongovernmental authorities such as the World Bank; civil litigation, including shareholder class actions and claims against officers and directors personally; and the newly developing area of claims under US Federal Victims of Crime Compensation laws. Attendees will learn about relevant precedents in these areas, emerging trends and best practices for evaluating and mitigating further liability after a resolution with US government.
Bill Lawler represents corporations, organizations, government entities, and individuals in high-stakes, high-profile matters in federal and state courts and before regulatory agencies and Congress.
His practice focuses on government enforcement actions and his clients’ response to and interactions with them. The specific subject of the actions can vary—as different administrations in the United States and jurisdictions abroad prioritize different types of enforcement—but include the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), criminal antitrust, healthcare fraud, public corruption, campaign finance, and other white collar crime issues.
Bill also represents and advises a broad range of clients, including corporate boards, audit committees, and management, on business and operational issues such as acquisitions, financings, risk evaluation and mitigation, and internal investigations.
Throughout his career, Bill has tried more than 70 jury cases to verdict, has had 15 appellate arguments, and has conducted hundreds of grand jury and motions proceedings. He has had matters in 37 U.S. states and more than 30 countries. His experience gives him insight into the nuances and developments in enforcement approaches and actions around the globe.
Prior to joining private practice, Bill served as the assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia (1989–1996).
