FCPA Professor Turns 9

first_imgIn 2009, I launched FCPA Professor with this simple mission statement.Nine years and 2,500+ posts later, FCPA Professor is still here and the mission remains the same.What started out in 2009 as a “blog” has turned into a comprehensive website that has been described as “the Wall Street Journal concerning all things FCPA-related,” and “the most authoritative source for those seeking to understand and apply the FCPA.” Along the way, FCPA Professor has been named a Top Law Blog for in-house counsel by Corporate Counsel, a Top 25 Business Law Blog by LexisNexis, and a top 100 Legal Blog by the American Bar Association.Other FCPA information sources often regurgitate what the DOJ or SEC say or serve as proxies for marketing legal and compliance services. FCPA Professor asks the questions that yield a more sophisticated understanding of the FCPA’s modern era. Other FCPA information sources spin narratives with seemingly little regard to actual facts. FCPA Professor publishes real news and real commentary backed by real statistics written by an individual with real FCPA experience.Doing anything every day for nine years straight has its ups and downs and the surprises, rewards and struggles remain the same as those described in this previous anniversary post.Running FCPA Professor takes time, money, and substantial effort, yet the content on FCPA Professor is provided free to readers (hundreds of thousands of readers each year from around the world). If I may ask one thing of readers on this occasion, it is to make this “relationship” more of a two-way street.Thus, if FCPA Professor adds value to your practice or business or otherwise enlightens your day and causes you to contemplate the issues in a more sophisticated way, please consider a donation to FCPA Professor to help celebrate this 9th anniversary.  Yearly subscriptions to other legal publications or sources of information can serve as an appropriate guide for a donation amount.last_img read more
