Ambitious Is Good: FCPA World Monitor

7 Aug

Via the Professor, I’ve read some posts by Rajat Soni, a lawyer who has entered the FCPA Commentariat with his FCPA World Monitor. Claiming to monitor the world is ambitious, but then again, I like ambitious.

Truth be told, I’ve read of couple of posts of Soni’s and I disagree vehemently with both of them. He sounds, in fact, like an acolyte of the aforementioned Professor. That said, and as the man once said, just because he disagrees with me doesn’t mean he’s wrong.

I’ll keep reading (I’ve already subscribed to the site via my RSS reader), if only because I like to know what the opposition is thinking. And who knows, he might trip over something and come down on the right side of an issue someday.

New voices are always welcome. Even if—maybe especially if—he disagrees with me.

By the way, when are we going to get a woman into the Commentariat? There are lots of incredible women lawyers in this space (Lucinda Low comes to mind. As do Cheryl Krause and Palmina Fava). But no one in the Commentariat (I see that Jessica Tillipman and Elizabeth Spahn are “Contributing Editors” to the FCPA Blog, but I’m talking about owning a site).

    Thanks Howard. I am an avid follower of your site even if I detest the Bueno theme. Even though Tom Fox ripped me a new backside for the post that undoubtedly found you rolling your eyes, we’ve since found common ground in our Houston roots and made an agreement to meet up soon.

    Thanks for the kind words and encouragement!

    p.s. situated in Mumbai, India, I feel I can claim the mantle “world” πŸ™‚ – at least for now…
