Financial Crime Column: November 2015


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.

In our column for November 2015, Aaron Stephens, Joanna Harris and Georgia Henderson-Cleland consider:

    • The US Department of Justice hires a compliance expert: bright idea or a step in the wrong direction?
    • Jamie Symington's speech on internal investigations: laying some ground rules for regulated firms.
    • OFSI: a "UK OFAC"?
    • Hitachi gets hit with FCPA charges.
