The law firm of Morrison & Foerster has added Charles Duross to its ranks. Duross served as the deputy chief of the Justice Department’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. He will join the firm’s office in Washington, according to a report from the Washington Post.

He served in that position from April 2010 until this past Friday. He begins work at the firm on February 17. The firm employs some 1,000 attorneys across the globe. Duross will work as a partner and as the head of the law firm’s global anti-corruption practice. Duross is being replaced by Patrick Stokes, a 15-year veteran of the Justice Department. Stokes also worked as the co-head of the fraud section’s securities and financial fraud department.

Duross noted that he recused himself from cases involving law firms he was interested in joining while still holding his government position. He made the decision to look for a job at a law firm back in October. Duross cannot interact with companies or persons with whom he investigated while with the Justice Department, according to ethics rules.

“Where I think I bring a lot of value is. . . I’ve seen what ‘best in class’ means with compliance programs,” he said. “I can say, ‘This is good, but here is where I think the weaknesses are.’ So if people in the C-suite ask if a program is good enough, I have the ability to give them comfort.”
