Compliance is becoming increasingly complex and global. Recent corporate scandals and the failure of risk management protocols in a number of significant enterprises have prompted governmental authorities to broaden the scope of their regulatory regimes and expand the reach of their enforcement efforts. Corporations in Asia and elsewhere operate under progressively intrusive regulatory requirements, perform in a more hostile law enforcement environment and answer to heightened scrutiny from shareholders and other stakeholders. Multinational companies face further challenges in inconsistent regulations across multiple jurisdictions. Businesses have to ensure that the policies and practices in place in one country do not create issues in another, and comply with extra-territorial regulation from their parent jurisdictions, whether in the form of assistance with their compliance programs, due diligence on transactions such as M&A and joint ventures, or in the handling of single or multijurisdictional investigations or claims. With the fallout from the global economic crisis, the level of scrutiny is only likely to increase.
