Lightfoot Partner Jack Sharman Interviewed For Law360 Article About FIFA Indictments
August 4, 2015
Law360?s Zachary Zagger writes about the FIFA prosecution and quotes, among others, Lightfoot white-collar partner Jack Sharman:
"Given this many defendants and the fact that there is going to be at least some who are going to cooperate, it would not surprise me if there wasn't a second wave of charges or people coming out of the woodwork, people you have not heard of yet," said Jackson R. Sharman III, a white collar criminal defense attorney with Lightfoot Franklin & White LLC.
"If it is going to survive, it is going to have to have a more rigorous compliance structure than some of the items that have come across thus far," Sharman said suggesting that it may need to create something like a corporate board of directors or an inspector general-type official to address compliance issues directly."
