Article

Posted by , on

Summary: In our November 2015 column, we discuss the US Department of Justice’s decision to hire a compliance expert; is it a bright idea or a step in the wrong direction? We also consider FCA Enforcement director Jamie Symington’s recent speech on internal investigations; similarities between the new Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation and the US Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control; and the recent FCPA settlement with Hitachi.

  • Jamie Symington's speech on internal investigations: laying some ground rules for regulated firms.
  • OFSI: a "UK OFAC"?
  • Hitachi gets hit with FCPA charges.
