Companies with international operations must comply with an often-dizzying array of compliance requirements from country to country, unwittingly risking government enforcement actions in one nation that may be considered “business as usual” in another. It’s not enough to be aware of each country’s laws and regulations, and maintaining that awareness can alone be extraordinarily difficult. Knowing the laws wherever your company operates, understanding how to conduct effective, efficient, and timely internal investigations, and recognizing how to respond to government authorities when compliance questions arise requires a dedicated network of professionals that few businesses can maintain themselves and that global professional services firms have difficulty providing.
