Michael Volkov, a frequent guest in this space and primary author of the blog called Corruption, Crime & Compliance, has published a book by the same name.
It collects some of his best writing — which means it’s full of common sense for lawyers and laypersons.
Staying calm and practical are what Volkov is all about. (One of his favorite quotes is, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” — from Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues).
Volkov brings to his compliance practice and writing plenty of experience — 30 years as an attorney in Washington, D.C. − as a federal prosecutor, a Chief Counsel on the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, a trial attorney in the Antitrust Division, and now in private practice.
His mentor and friend, Judge Stanley Sporkin, the ‘father of the FCPA,’ wrote the foreword. He said:
Michael Volkov’s book is a compilation of articles on a number of subjects important to advising clients how to stay out of trouble. He is a prolific writer and I can say without question, we have not heard the last of his musings.
Simply put, his book contains important information that should prove helpful to lawyers, particularly to those who practice in the white collar field.
