December 18, 2019
A GIR data review ranks partner Doug Greenburg among individual lawyers that have secured the most public Foreign Corrupt Practices Act declinations issued by the DOJ since 2010.

Global Investigations Review (GIR) recently culled through public records and reported that Latham is tied for third place among law firms that have secured the most publicly known declinations to prosecute Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) cases by the US Department of Justice since 2010. GIR’s review also showed that Washington, D.C. Litigation & Trial Department Co-Chair Doug Greenburg is tied for third place among individual lawyers who have secured the most public FCPA declinations in the same period. 

One such matter resolved in February of this year when Greenburg, Global Chair of the White Collar Defense & Investigations Practice Kathy Ruemmler, partner Erin Brown Jones, and associates Natalie Hardwick Rao and Jessica Lynn Saba secured a declination for Cognizant. Latham secured another FCPA declination this year for OSI Systems in a matter led by partner Bill Baker, counsel Daniel Dominguez, and associates Lauren Talerman, Natasha Bronn Schrier, Catherine Yao, Charles Guinn, and Joseph De Leon in June. 

GIR recognized Latham as Most Impressive Investigations Practice of the Year in October for the firm’s work obtaining these declinations as well as favorably resolving multiple other investigations for clients including Microsoft and Technip FMC. 

Greenburg counsels clients throughout the world on compliance with US laws and advises US clients on domestic compliance issues arising from international operations. He represents clients in internal corporate investigations, white collar criminal matters, and SEC enforcement proceedings. Greenburg has particular experience representing public companies, as well as their boards and audit committees, in connection with high-stakes law enforcement and regulatory matters.
