Welcome to Compliance Hot Spots, our briefing on compliance, enforcement and government affairs. Getting back from the long weekend, we’ve got some early thinking on the 2nd Circuit’s ruling limiting the reach of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Plus: The United Kingdom’ Serious Fraud Office has picked a Justice Department veteran to serve as its next leader, and the state-legal cannabis industry is pushing back against the Internal Revenue Service’s broad powers. Scroll down for new appointments and new hires.

As always thanks for reading—and please do send feedback. I appreciate hearing from you about what’s on your plate—observations, trends, new clients. I’m at [email protected] and 202-828-0315, or follow me on Twitter @cryanbarber.
