The appointment of Sergio Moro, the federal judge that oversaw Lava Jato, as Brazil’s Minister of Justice and Public Safety, is a clear signal that, far from winding down its anti-corruption activities, Brazil intends to redouble its efforts to root out corruption, says Juan Morillo, Co-Chair of the White Collar and Corporate Investigations Practice at Quinn Emanuel.

“Judge Moro's appointment as justice minister will no doubt position him to make an even greater impact on Brazil's anti-corruption agenda than before,” says Matteson Ellis, an attorney at Miller & Chevalier and author of The FCPA in Latin America.

That, in turn, is expected to strengthen US-Brazil cooperation on violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, they say.
