Partner Morrison Foerster What the "Yates Memo" on "Individual Accountability" Means for Anti-Bribery Compliance- A View from the 'Targeter' and the 'Targetee' Since the publication of the DOJ guidance on individual accountability (The 'Yates" Memo), there has been a great deal of analysis and speculation as to what this guidance means for both multinationals and individuals. In this session, you will here two unique and unfiltered views, through the voice of experience, as to what this policy might portent for future anti-bribery compliance. During his time as Senior Deputy Chief of the Fraud Section in the Criminal Division of the U.S. DoJ, Mr. James Koukios, now Partner at Morrison Foerster, tried over 20 federal jury cases, including serving as the lead prosecutor in two landmark FCPA-related trials, United States v. Esquenazi and United States v. Duperval. Mr. Koukios will share how this new DOJ guidance will change the dynamics between the DOJ and corporations in investigating and litigating alleged wrongdoing in a number of important ways. As Mr. Koukios has shared in a number of papers "the bar for cooperation credit just got a lot higher." Go behind the scenes with Mr. Bistrong and Mr. Koukios into the world of enforcement, corruption and bribery as they share "real world" compliance insights, examining the practical challenges of this recent development.

An experienced trial attorney and former federal prosecutor, Mr. Koukios has tried over 20 federal jury cases, including serving as the lead prosecutor in two landmark FCPA-related trials, United States v. Esquenazi and United States v. Duperval. His practice focuses on white-collar criminal and related matters, including compliance counseling, transactional due diligence, internal corporate investigations, and government enforcement actions. Prior to joining Morrison & Foerster, Mr. Koukios served as the Senior Deputy Chief of the Fraud Section in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). In that role, he supervised investigations, prosecutions and resolutions in the Fraud Section's FCPA, Health Care Fraud and Securities and Financial Fraud Units. Mr. Koukios was an Assistant Chief in the Fraud Section's FCPA Unit from 2012 to 2014, directly supervising some of the Unit's most high-profile matters. He assisted with drafting the DOJ and SEC joint publication, A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which followed a series of consultations with business and compliance leaders. He was also a lead examiner for the Phase 2 examination of Russia's compliance with the Anti-Bribery Convention of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). As a line prosecutor in the Fraud Section from 2009 to 2012, Mr. Koukios investigated and prosecuted numerous individuals and corporations for violations of the FCPA and other white-collar crimes. Mr. Koukios was the lead trial lawyer for the United States in the seminal Esquenazi FCPA trial and the Duperval money laundering trial. The Esquenazi trial resulted in the first appellate decision on whether and when a state-owned enterprise qualifies as an "instrumentality" under the FCPA. The Duperval trial resulted in the first jury conviction of a foreign official on money laundering offenses related to the FCPA and was also affirmed on appeal. For his work on these matters, he received the Assistant Attorney General's Distinguished Service Award. While at the Fraud Section, he also gained significant experience in investigating and prosecuting individuals and corporations for health care fraud and other white-collar crimes. From 2010 to 2011, Mr. Koukios served as Special Counsel to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, advising the Director and other FBI executives on criminal policy issues, preparing FBI Executive Management for congressional testimony, representing the FBI at interagency meetings, and acting as a liaison between FBI and other DOJ components.

As an AUSA, he represented the United States in hundreds of proceedings, served as trial attorney in 19 federal felony jury trials, and prosecuted fraud, public corruption, export control, money laundering, narcotics, violent crime, and immigration offenses. Among several notable cases, Mr. Koukios was a lead prosecutor in United States v. AEY, Inc., et al., a defense procurement fraud case featured on the front page of The New York Times. Throughout his decade-long service as a federal prosecutor, Mr. Koukios worked closely with state, federal, and foreign law enforcement officials, as well as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Departments of Defense, State and Commerce, and intelligence agencies. Following law school, Mr. Koukios clerked for Judge Edith Brown Clement in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. In 1999, Mr. Koukios graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he served as supervising editor for the Harvard Journal on Legislation, and earned his B.A. with highest distinction in 1996 from the University of Michigan, where he received the William Jennings Bryan award, given annually to the top political science graduate.
