While TSH&D attorneys are equipped to handle clients’ disputes, we understand that most companies would prefer to prevent such disputes from ever arising. TSH&D attorneys advise clients on the design and implementation of effective corporate compliance programs to deter and detect conduct which may lead to corporate liability in today’s intense regulatory environment. Our attorneys have also conducted compliance audits to assess areas of potential concern and recommend remedial and proactive measures to limit their potential exposure.
We have drafted and assisted with the implementation of compliance policies for both small businesses and publicly-traded corporations in a number of areas, including:
- Gifts & Entertainment
- Political Contributions
- Insider Trading
- Professional and Trade Licensing
- Response to Government Inquiries and Search Warrants
- Document Retention and Electronic Discovery
Corporate Compliance is an area of particular concern to government contractors, because losing the ability to provide goods and services to the government is often fatal to business. TSH&D attorneys have specialized expertise developing compliance programs for government contractors who in today’s regulatory environment face increased scrutiny of their compliance not only with applicable laws and regulations, but also with specific contract specifications. Our attorneys work to develop these programs with an understanding that each business is unique, and that a compliance program is only effective if it fits into the day-to-day business environment in which our clients operate.
We also regularly assist our clients in their disputes with regulatory agencies. Whether a client is investigated for an allegation of wrongdoing or is involved in a simple contract dispute with a public entity, our attorneys have successfully negotiated satisfactory resolutions with both state and federal regulators.
