Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Criminal Defense Newsletter, Summer 2008


In This Issue

This edition of the Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Criminal Defense Newsletter opens with

an overview of recent trends in enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, an area in which we expect

to see more government action. We then turn to a primer on recently announced guidelines for the appointment of independent corporate monitors, which are often a feature of non-prosecution or deferred prosecution agreements with corporations. Next, our colleague and legendary trial lawyer, Jim Brosnahan, reviews ten things you can do to steer clear of potential criminal problems. We follow with an update on a recent Ninth Circuit case involving SEC and Department of Justice cooperation—and the unusual events

surrounding a request for an en banc hearing. We close with a report on the progress of an advisory committee to the SEC that is looking for ways to reduce the number of restatements.

Our goal for our newsletter is to provide our friends with timely, brief, and relevant reports on interesting

issues. We hope you enjoy this edition, which touches on some of the many issues our attorneys in the U.S.,

Europe, and Asia litigate and follow. Thanks for reading.
