International Regulatory and Compliance

In today’s environment of global regulatory scrutiny, establishing effective compliance programs and providing sophisticated advice to clients on a broad spectrum of issues has become increasingly important to help mitigate risk. We offer a team led by former senior officials, enforcement attorneys, prosecutors, and trial lawyers from the DOJ, SEC, and FTC who draw upon their deep experience and institutional knowledge to help our clients avoid the risks and financial and reputational costs associated with regulatory enforcement and litigation.

“[Simpson Thacher has a] ‘phenomenal bench of former prosecutors and regulators.’”
Chambers USA (quoting interviewees)

We work proactively with our clients to identify risks, construct and implement policies and procedures that are effective and efficient, conduct trainings, as well as establish ongoing auditing and monitoring of compliance measures. We believe in investing the time and resources to learn how a client operates, understand its market, and how we can best collaborate as a team to manage risks and achieve our clients’ business objectives.

Our cross-practice and multijurisdictional team has extensive experience in identifying issues and solutions for a number of risk and exposure areas, including:

  • Antitrust (criminal bid rigging and price fixing);
  • Anti-money laundering (AML);
  • Computer hacking and data breaches;
  • FCPA and anti-corruption;
  • Government inquiries and examinations;
  • International trade (CFIUS);
  • Insider trading;
  • Securities fraud allegations, financial reporting, and accounting matters;
  • Whistleblower hotlines and allegations; and
  • Violations of economic and trade sanctions (OFAC).
“Impressive FCPA practice with experience representing corporations and individual clients in high-stakes DOJ and SEC investigations.”
