Our International Regulation, Enforcement & Compliance group is comprised of staff attorneys with an international focus and a network of professionals throughout the world. Headed by Jack Harrington, our International team understands that our clients operating in multiple jurisdictions face a complex web of local regulations, tax issues, and business customs. Our breadth of knowledge and experience in the international arena, coupled with our local connections worldwide, allows us to counsel clients in a variety of matters with an international component.
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
Our attorneys have a wealth of experience counseling clients on their obligations under the FCPA. We design and implement policies, due diligence, and risk-based compliance strategies for companies regardless of their compliance budget and resources. We offer FCPA training, conduct due diligence, and lead clients through FCPA investigations in response to whistleblower or government subpoenas. Our attorneys also represent clients before the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in FCPA enforcement actions.
International Trade, Investment, and National Security
Our Long Island team advises corporate clients on international trade and compliance with U.S. and international sanctions regimes, including those administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). We also counsel clients on the regulatory issues facing American companies investing or trading overseas, and are experienced in issues involving restricted products (including International Traffic in Arms regulations (ITAR) or the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security). The firm also advises clients on foreign investment in the United States and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) process.
Cross-Border Investigations and Compliance
Our International Regulation, Enforcement & Compliance group understands the unique sensitivities of conducting cross-border investigations. We represent multinational corporations in enforcement actions or investigations involving the DOJ, SEC, Congress, or other government bodies. We also prepare and help our clients implement compliance policies.
Services for Financial Institutions
Financial services firms have unique cross-border regulatory, enforcement, and compliance needs. Our attorneys are well versed in the complexities these clients face, and advise clients on issues pertaining to anti-money laundering and the Bank Secrecy Act.
