DOJ’s Duross joining MoFo

The prosecutor who has led the Justice Department’s efforts to enforce the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for the past four years, Charles Duross, is headed for the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

He’ll work in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office and head up its global anti-corruption practice beginning February 17.

Duross has been chief of the DOJ’s FCPA unit since 2010. He joined the Justice Department Fraud Section in 2006.

As FCPA unit chief, he has overseen enforcement actions that resulted in about $2 billion in penalties.

Duross told Reuters he didn’t expect his move to change the DOJ’s robust FCPA enforcement — characterized by a focus on Asia, and on companies’ use of third parties in risky regions.

Patrick Stokes, who has led the financial fraud unit in DOJ’s criminal division, will assume the new lead spot in the FCPA unit.


Julie DiMauro is the executive editor of FCPA Blgo and can be reached here.
