The decision to make the letters ...

The decision to make the letters of declination public is a significant change from past practice, says James Koukios, a partner at law firm Morrison Foerster and a former senior deputy chief of the DoJ's fraud section.

...
Koukios raises some concerns about the DoJ's decisions to decline prosecution only when a company disgorges profits stemming from the wrongdoing, which has been the case with each of the four declinations so far. "I understand the gut reaction, that companies shouldn't keep tainted money," he says. But requiring companies to disgorge profits when they've acted quickly and thoroughly to stop the activity and prevent future problems may prompt companies to question whether self-reporting and cooperating with the enforcement agencies actually will pay off. "There's no perfect solution," he adds.
...
"It's a notable percentage," Koukios says.
...
Until recently, the SEC and DoJ brought most FCPA cases almost in parallel with each other, Koukios says. This year to date, four of the resolutions have been parallel, and ten have been only from the SEC. "The DoJ has become more circumspect in the cases it will bring," says Koukios. It then can shift resources to other cases, including those in which the SEC doesn't have jurisdiction.
In addition, by limiting the number of parallel cases to those in which the companies under investigation decide not to work with the government and fail to take remediating action, the DOJ emphasizes the importance of mitigation and cooperation, Koukios says.

"It's easy to slip-up in China," Koukios says.
