Keeping up with regulatory developments and devising proactive strategies for compliance can be challenging. Our attorneys work with clients to design and implement effective compliance policies and procedures and thereby minimize the risk of a government investigation or prosecution. We advise clients on best practices for the development, implementation, and operation of compliance and business ethics programs and provide training programs to ensure that employees understand policies. We assist in the development of corporate procedures to facilitate anonymous reporting to audit committees and prepare for the possibility of whistleblower reporting to the SEC. We also oversee and conduct compliance investigations and due diligence on our clients’ behalf. This assistance is rendered by our French and U.S. offices, either locally or on a cross-border basis, to listed and non-listed companies and to financial institutions.
