Foreign Corrupt Practices Act


Derek Hahn Named to Daily Journal’s 2019 List of "40 Under 40" California Lawyers

Irvine, Calif. — August 15, 2019: The Daily Journal has named Derek Hahn to the “Top 40 Under 40” California lawyers list. The California-based legal publication’s annual list recognizes the achievements of lawyers under the age of 40.

Hahn’s Daily Journal profile highlights his international experience counseling clients in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) matters, and in securities fraud and financial investigations. The profile notes Hahn’s passion for traveling around the globe—something often required by the international nature of his practice. He represents clients in an array of government investigations and enforcement actions, including counseling clients in multiple industries on global anti-corruption issues across six continents.

Hahn’s FCPA experience includes a full spectrum of matters: government and internal investigations, third-party due diligence reviews, compliance program and training development, and anti-corruption risk assessments. “The diligence side of what we do is designed to proactively prevent corruption and mitigate risks – not just respond to transgressions as they arise,” Hahn told the Daily Journal. “The other side of the ledger comes when there has been an accusation” resulting in an investigation.

Beyond his day-to-day white collar practice, Hahn regularly volunteers time to pro bono matters. He co-chaired a pro bono jury trial in a federal civil rights case in Los Angeles, and assists low-income individuals in obtaining free legal representation through the Archdiocesan Legal Network. Hahn previously served on the Board of the Orange County Chapter of the National Contract Management Association. He was elected president of the Chapter for two consecutive terms and led it to earn the organization’s highest national recognition during his tenure. He is also a member of the American Bar Association’s Global Anti-Corruption Committee and International White Collar Committee.
