The Department of Justice (DOJ) is sticking with David Fuhr as permanent head of its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Unit.
Fuhr had the “acting” removed from his title on Oct. 10, a DOJ spokesperson confirmed. Fuhr had been serving as acting chief of the FCPA Unit, which is housed under the DOJ’s Fraud Section, since May, when his predecessor David Last departed the agency.
Last has since joined law firm Cleary Gottlieb as a partner.
Fuhr has been with the DOJ nearly 11 years, according to his LinkedIn profile. Prior to taking up leadership in the FCPA Unit, he served as a trial attorney in the Fraud Section.
The DOJ has been relatively quiet on the FCPA enforcement front this year, though Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco recently hinted at a strong enforcement pipeline coming.
