The group represented Las Vegas Sands in connection with DOJ and SEC FCPA investigation involving whistleblower allegations regarding the company’s conduct in Macau, resulting in a deferred prosecution. Washington DC’s Laurence Urgenson (who is noted for his ‘extensive white-collar expertise’) was selected by the DOJ and SEC to lead LATAM Airlines Group’s independent monitorship, in connection with an FCPA enforcement action. New York’s Michael Martinez represented Hugo Jinkis, who was indicted by the Eastern District of New York US Attorney’s Office for his alleged role in obtaining broadcasting and advertising rights to FIFA soccer tournaments through $110m in commercial bribes.
