Advice on International Compliance With US LawsAttorney Describes Value of Department of Justice Guidance
Even if a company has no operations in the U.S., it should follow the compliance guidance offered by the U.S. Department of Justice in June, says Benjamin Haley, a partner at Covington & Burling LLP, an international law firm based in Washington.
"Companies that operate internationally but don't have operations on the ground in the United States can still be exposed to U.S. laws in a variety of different ways," he says.
In this video interview with Suparna Goswami of Information Security Media Group, Haley also discusses:
- How companies can implement compliance programs;
- Why DOJ's compliance guidance matters to companies outside the U.S.;
- What compliance practitioners have to say about the guidance.
At Covington & Burling LLP, Haley leads a white-collar and anti-corruption practice in Africa and is a vice chair of the firm's broader Africa practice. He has extensive experience representing clients before U.S. regulators.
