S&C Critical Insights – Developing a Robust Multi-National Compliance Program

November 11, 2022

In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Litigation partners Brendan Cullen and Tony Lewis provide an update and some key takeaways for building and sustaining an effective compliance program in light of recent remarks from Department of Justice officials, including September comments by Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco.
Brendan and Tony build on their previous podcasts from 2020 and 2021 and discuss the agency’s enforcement priorities and its newest compliance expectations. These developments come at a time when U.S. enforcement agencies appear to be increasingly focused on corporate compliance. 
Topics include the DOJ’s focus on data analytics in testing the effectiveness of a company’s compliance function and culture, using compensation systems to provide incentives or disciplinary measures to improve compliance, and on companies’ use of electronic messages on personal devices.
