FTI Consulting received $740K for strategic communications work on behalf of the Ukrainian Office of the Prosecutor General from May through December 2012 to promote a report by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom regarding evidence and procedures used during the 2011 trial of former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko.
Skadden failed to register with the Justice Dept. the Ukrainian effort on behalf of Paul Manafort, who was Donald Trump’s campaign manager, which led to a US civil suit.
In January, Skadden agreed to register retroactively a Foreign Agents Registration Act filing and pay a $4.6M fine.
FTI/UK unit filed the FARA documentation on July 12.
