S&C Partners and Latin Lawyer Collaborate on The Guide to Corporate Compliance, First Edition
Many companies and financial institutions are attracted to Latin 
America’s business opportunities, but face growing regulatory challenges and a more active enforcement environment. As a consequence, corporations have increasingly focused on internal corporate compliance programs.
 
Drawing on their industry-leading expertise in corporate compliance, 
S&C litigation partner Brendan Cullen and special counsel Anthony Lewis authored a chapter in Latin Lawyer’s recently-published Guide to Corporate Compliance. In the chapter, “Developing a Robust Compliance Programme in Latin America,” the authors address some of the key risks and challenges multinational corporations face in building  compliance programs, and strategies to maintain a tailored program.

Developing a Robust Multi-National Compliance Program
In this recent podcast, Brendan Cullen and Tony Lewis discuss key considerations for companies in building and sustaining an effective compliance program. They provide an overview of guidance from U.S. enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice and the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control; explore issues
that can arise for companies with multi-national operations; and outline best practices.

S&C in Latin America
Throughout more than a century of involvement in Latin America—dating back to the creation of the Panama Canal—S&C has played an integral role in Latin America’s economic and legal history.
 
Today, S&C is known for litigation successes, including representing:
  • Republic of Argentina in litigation brought by investor funds in the Southern District of New York relating to GDP-linked securities. The court dismissed the first-filed of the cases in January 2020;
  • Grupo México S.A.B. de C.V. in Delaware derivative litigation challenging acquisition of power plants;
  • Banco Bradesco in a shareholder class action in the Southern District of New York; and
  • U.S. and foreign financial institutions, as well as a Spanish individual and a U.S. corporation, in connection with FIFA corruption investigations.
