Jon Jordan Renews the Call for a Compliance Defense to the FCPA


We recently saw the entry of a new voice for the addition of a compliance defense as an amendment to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). This voice was Jon Jordan, Senior Investigations Counsel with the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) FCPA Unit, a national unit within the SEC specializing exclusively on FCPA and foreign bribery matters. Jon’s ideas appeared in a law review article, entitled “The Adequate Procedures Defense Under the UK Bribery Act: A British Idea for the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act” found in Volume 17, No. 1, Fall 2011 edition of the Stanford Journal of Law, Business & Finance.
