Compliance & Regulatory

Enforcement of corruption violations is at an all-time high. In 2014 alone, DOJ pursued record fines (and imprisonment) against well-known multinationals. Compliance has reached a whole new dimension, which is keeping GCs, AGCs, and corporate in-house legal departments up at night wondering whether their cross-border subdivisions and general business practices will get them in trouble.

FLI NET Compliance & Regulatory Practice Group advises clients on many relevant aspects of compliance and regulatory related matters globally. FLI NET clients are provided the added comfort that all FLI members are not only familiar with FCPA, Anti-Bribery, OCED, SOX, AML, but rather proficient and fully capable of identifying and uncovering and reporting any such potential violation.
