Businesses and individuals in the United States and throughout the world are operating in an environment of increasingly aggressive and punitive government enforcement. Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission openly stated they are committed to continuing corporate reform and have been working with international regulatory agencies to combat corporate fraud both within the U.S. and globally. Matters previously handled through civil or regulatory processes now often result in criminal investigations. This increased regulatory scrutiny is complex, burdensome, and costly, and often results in administrative, criminal and civil proceedings. The stakes for individuals are higher, with employees at all organizational levels from sales to top corporate executives and legal departments increasingly finding themselves the targets of investigations.
