Anti-Corruption and Ethics
Dan served as Senior Compliance Counsel at Tyco where, as part of the post-Dennis Kozlowski clean-up effort over a five-year period, he developed and implemented global compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). The company’s highly successful resolution with the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission resulted in a Non-Prosecution agreement and no monitor. After the merger of Tyco’s Flow Control Division with Pentair, Mr. Dorsky most recently served as Pentair’s Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, where he brought its Flow Control division to a successful resolution of its three-year period of self-reporting to the DOJ under Tyco’s FCPA settlement.
At Tyco, he led and oversaw global investigations, and helped conceive and drive the implementation of state-of-the-art compliance initiatives, such as Tyco’s groundbreaking Third Party Management Program.
At Pentair, he was also responsible for developing and leading its global compliance organization, including supervising the worldwide investigations group, overseeing its anti-bribery and anti-trust functions, international trade compliance operational teams, mergers and acquisitions anti-corruption due diligence, the Office of Business Conduct and Ethics (global training and education programs and case management), data privacy, Third Party Management Program, and overseeing a globally-based team of compliance attorneys.
Prior to serving at Tyco and then Pentair, Dan was Compliance Counsel at HBO. Before that, he served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Department of Justice, for both the Southern District of New York and the Eastern District of New York. He focused on complex criminal investigations and prosecutions of white collar crime and tax fraud, among other areas. Dan made material contributions to the effort to dismantle organized crime in New York, including twice prosecuting the legendary boss of the Genovese Crime Family, Vincent “the Chin” Gigante. He was recognized with two US Department of Justice Director’s Awards for Superior Performance.
Dan began his legal career as an associate in private practice, later served in a federal clerkship with the Honorable Carol Bagley Amon of the Eastern District of New York, and worked with the American Civil Liberties Union.
Dan’s background combines public service in the Department of Justice and work in the corporate sector as well as service in private practice and in the nonprofit sector. He has represented companies in dealings with the DOJ and the Securities and Exchange Commission in arriving at favorable resolutions.
