Anti-Money Laundering and Bank Secrecy Act

A Unique Enforcement Perspective We are uniquely situated to help our clients manage regulatory and enforcement risk, whether through front-end compliance assistance or responding to law enforcement or regulatory inquiries.

Antitrust (Cartels)

Cartel expertise Competition authorities worldwide are dialing up their anti-cartel efforts and heightening cross-border collaboration, with synchronized "dawn raids" mounted across jurisdictions. Companies can expect more of the same going forward – perhaps much more. Critical to risk management is an aggressive response that proactively addresses compliance alerts and other indications of anti-competitive conduct. Speed and agility can also mean the difference between amnesty or leniency and catastrophic sanctions. The choice of cartel counsel is thus a crucial decision point in protecting ...

Antitrust & Competition

Or why Whole Foods instructed us to represent it before the FTC, why Telenor came to us for the European Commission’s review of its mobile telephony merger in Denmark and Aland Jiangsu Nutraceutical Co. chose us to defend it in the first cartel case ever brought against a Chinese company in a U.S. court.
