The ‘Frederic Bourke’ case

January 2007

The ‘Frederic Bourke’ case

In early 2007, the counsel defending Frederic Bourke, the Dooney & Bourke co-founder, engaged FRA in a high-profile FCPA investigation and subsequent prosecution. Bourke had invested in a scheme run by Victor Kozeny seeking to benefit from the future privatization of the Azeri state oil company, as had a number of institutional investors. FRA’s work involved the tracing of fund flows through a number of off-shore vehicles and eDiscovery support. The case established that while it was Kozeny who orchestrated the scheme to bribe senior Azeri government officials in order to encourage the privatization, Bourke had been “willfully blind” to the knowledge of the bribery.
