COMPLIANCE

Federal, state, and international regulation of business has become more comprehensive, extending to every sector of the economy and imposing myriad compliance obligations.  This, and the accompanying more aggressive enforcement environment have made corporate compliance a key part of every business’s legal strategy.  Ellerman Enzinna attorneys have guided businesses, large and small, in designing and implementing compliance programs with regard to anti-corruption laws, antitrust regulation, government contracting, employment law, and financial and export controls.  We have written compliance programs tailored to clients’ unique circumstances, trained employees, and investigated potential violations.
