After four years at the U.S. Department of Justice leading the charge against Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violators, Charles Duross soon will offer his help to Morrison & Foerster clients looking to keep DOJ’s FCPA investigators at bay.

Duross on Friday stepped down as the head of DOJ’s FCPA Unit to join Morrison & Foerster on Feb. 17 as a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, the firm announced Monday. He will lead Morrison & Foerster’s anticorruption practice.

Following 12 years at the Justice Department, it was time to move on, Duross said. During that time, he was an assistant U.S. attorney in Miami before coming to Washington to serve as a DOJ Fraud Section line prosecutor, and later assistant chief and leader of the FCPA Unit.
