Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: An Interview with Shrutih Tewarie

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Renzi to generate dialogue among and build community with women lawyers

These days, we are looking at this widespread remote working scenario as an opportunity to enhance business relationships by reexamining professional boundaries and relying on means such as video conferences and phone calls. This "video podcast" series consists of discussions with female and male attorneys about issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them interesting and helpful and we are grateful to all the lawyers who made time to talk with us.

Guest: Shrutih Tewarie, Partner, Foley Hoag LLP

In today’s episode, Veronica gets real with Shrutih Tewarie, a newly-elected partner in Foley Hoag’s Litigation Practice and White Collar Crime and Government Investigations Group, effective January 2021. Shrutih discusses how her international background and fluency in five languages have shaped and influenced her cross-border disputes and investigations practice, and have allowed her to work with and represent companies, individuals and sovereign states all over the world. She also shares her views on trends in the area of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement, including the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) continued focus on corporate enforcement and the investigation and prosecution of individuals. She also highlights the DOJ’s continued willingness to use criminal laws other than the FCPA to charge former foreign government officials implicated in bribery schemes with a nexus to the United States. Shrutih also shares her views regarding steps companies can take to meet their anti-corruption compliance obligations and how her practice has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
