• Lead counsel for a former Allied Defense Group executive charged alongside 21 other individuals in the first large-scale, FCPA-related FBI sting case. After an 18-week jury trial, in what was called the U.S. Department of Justice’s “Flagship FCPA prosecution,” the presiding Federal judge granted the government’s motion to dismiss all charges after the jury deadlocked in overwhelming favor for acquittal of Mr. McCool’s client. United States v. Marc Frederick Morales, 09-CR-349 (D.D.C.).
