DOJ Names Daniel Kahn Chief of FCPA Unit

Daniel Kahn

According to a June 1 news report, the DOJ has named Daniel Kahn to lead the Fraud Section’s FCPA unit.  Mr. Kahn has led the FCPA unit on an interim basis since March of this year.  He was previously the Assistant Chief of the FCPA Unit since 2013.  Mr. Kahn has led significant recent FCPA prosecutions including the Alstom case, which led to a record $772 million fine, and the Esquenazi case, which generated case law on the FCPA’s definition of a foreign official.  (See previous FCPA Scorecard coverage of those cases here and here.)
