O’Melveny’s Brown Quoted in Washington Post on Bribery Prosecution
June 10, 2013
O’Melveny & Myers partner Mary Patrice Brown was quoted in a June 7, 2013, Washington Post article regarding bribery charges against a public official. “There has to be a solid basis,” Brown said in the article, before prosecutors will conduct an undercover operation targeting a public official. She also noted that it is not uncommon for agents to investigate one matter, but “end up filing charges related to another matter entirely.” Brown is a member of O’Melveny’s White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations Practice and resides in the Firm’s Washington, DC office.
