Managing White Collar Legal Issues, 2016 ed.
White-collar law is a complex area, covering issues such as fraud, corruption, and money laundering, to name a few. Lawyers in this field must be prepared to address many types of cases, often with a number of complex details Ð and the stakes can be very high. In Managing White Collar Legal Issues, experienced lawyers share the insights and best practices that have helped them succeed in the field of white-collar law, discussing government enforcement in the U.S. and abroad, building and updating compliance plans, and evaluating whether or not to take a case to trial. The authors also highlight laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), recent enforcement actions such as those against Alstom and Alcoa, and trends such as "impact cases." Whether trying to help their clients remain in compliance with white-collar law or defending them against enforcement actions, lawyers in this area will find this book a valuable resource.
