What are the odds in your FCPA compliance investigation?


The experts have spoken and the Astros are a 75-1 long shot to win the World Series. But that is just what the experts predict and as we are 3 weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting for Spring Training I prefer to take the pink cloud approach, that at least as of now, the Astros have as good a chance as any team to make it to the Fall Classic. Of course, in the 50+ years of professional baseball in Houston, the Astros (and their predecessor Colt 45s) have made it that far only once. But at least it happened in my lifetime…

All of which brings us to this posting’s topic, Catelas software. In my transaction lawyer life, I do work for some medium to small software companies, which license software generally related to the energy industry. One of the best pitches you can make about a software product is along the lines of the following, “I have this software which can do some really cool stuff.” I recently saw a demonstration of Catelas software and came away thinking, this is some really cool stuff. But even more than such platitudes, the software allows the FCPA compliance professional a different way to continuously monitor within a company for possible Red Flags and to begin, organize and implement a FCPA compliance investigation in a more cost effective manner.
