The three biggest Brazilian political corruption investigations are Mensalão, Lava-Jato and Acrônimo. Bruno Jorge Fagali says that the common element is that the all involve advertising companies.
Bruno Jorge Fagali tells us about five possible warning signs pointing to possible corruption. Bruno Jorge Fagali points out that these signs are not definite indicators that something illicit is going on, but that it is important to increase control and surveillance in the presence of all or any of these red flags.
The first red flag for corruption is the intermediation of advertising companies for payments directed to different kinds of media for services. This intermediation can result in advertising companies not charging the advertiser or not passing the money on to the media company.
The second red flag is the media managing criteria. When an advertising agency is in charge, it can propose to the advertiser, which kinds of media are to be used. This in and of itself is a fertile territory for misconduct and anti-ethical behavior. To avoid this, advertising agencies must be required to present to the advertiser a study that states costs, strategies and tactics and kind of media to be used.
The third red flag is an incentive plan where a commission is paid for the volume of advertising in specific media. This could result in the advertising company pushing a specific kind of media.
The fourth red flag is a relationship of the advertising company with the advertiser. This can allow to the advertiser to give presents and gifts to the advertising company in order to get a better deal.
The fifth red flag is the advertising company charging services and supply fees to the media company. This is limited to 15% according to Brazilian law and frequently overlooked by media companies.

Litigators are people who represent other in civil cases and manage every phase of the litigation process including the investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement, and appeal. A litigator essentially specializes in taking any legal action against organizations or individuals and addresses every issue from start to finish.
Unlike trial lawyers who usually just take action in the courtroom, litigators take action from the beginning to the end. First, litigators must gather every detail that may affect the outcome of a case. They have an obligation to advocate for the client being represented and could involve identifying/interviewing witnesses.
Once every bit of information is gathered, litigators then initiate the case by filing with the court. A litigator may also be called in to represent the client in court as well. The litigator handles the “discovery” portion of the case, which simply means the exchange of information between the parties in question. The litigator then handles all hearings and negotiations, ultimately appearing in the courtroom for trial if a settlement can’t be reached. If the trial doesn’t go well for the client, the litigator also handles filing and handling an appeal.
To become a litigator, one must acquire an undergraduate degree first. Then the person must go on to receive their Juris Doctor, a graduate-entry professional degree in law. After the Juris Doctor is received, the bar exam must be passed. Every employer’s requirements will vary, but many litigators find themselves working as volunteers or interns before finding the perfect job.
Karl Heideck received his undergraduate degree from Swarthmore College and his Juris Doctor from the James E. Beasley School of Law at Temple University. Karl Heideck is a licensed litigator in Pennsylvania and served at the offices of Pepper Hamilton LLP.
Karl Heideck specializes in litigation, compliance, and risk management review. As Karl Heideck is a contract litigator and does not take private clients, he does maintain Professional Liability Insurance because he has no risk of being exposed to malpractice actions. His license has remained in good standing for 8 years, since passing the bar exam in 2009.
