Global Compliance

Corporate Compliance Corporate Compliance
Companies today are operating in an environment of ever-increasing laws and regulations. Failure to adhere to these laws and regulations may subject them and their employees, officers and directors to substantial fines, penalties, and consequences. Various US and international laws provide companies with a defense or an opportunity to mitigate fines and penalties for violations of law if they have an effective corporate compliance program in place. MDO Partners has extensive experience in developing effective compliance programs for Fortune 500, private and international companies in various industries.

Anti-Corruption (FCPA) Anti-Corruption (FCPA)
Countries around the world have declared war on corruption as well as the corporations and officers who have chosen to engage in bribery as a means of obtaining or retaining a business advantage. With record-setting fines being levied in the billions of dollars, it has become paramount for corporations to establish appropriate policies, procedures, training and other controls to prevent and detect bribery within their organizations. MDO Partners is well suited to represent corporations who conduct business internationally and have recognized the importance of establishing an anti-corruption program within their organization.

Antitrust and Competition Laws Antitrust and Competition Laws
Antitrust and competition laws are designed to foster the development of an efficient market economy by prohibiting activities that lessen competition. Most countries have adopted antitrust and competition laws, but companies that operate internationally all too often stray across these laws because they are so complex. These competition laws provide harsh sanctions and penalties for those who violate them, including huge damages awards (e.g. treble damages), criminal fines, imprisonment for corporate executives and reputational damage. The attorneys at MDO Partners have extensive experience in competition laws and can assist clients in avoiding such damages.
