Common Mistakes in the Design and Operation of Compliance Programs—and the Legal Consequences They Create

May 21, 2019

It is no secret that having a compliance program is a must, particularly for companies in heavily regulated industries. The existence of an “effective” compliance program is a material credit in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines; it is a factor used by enforcement agencies in determining whether to pursue criminal charges or even to pursue a matter at all; and, most importantly it can prevent wrongdoing in the first place. But, all too often companies put little thought into the design of the program and, even more frequently, pay little attention to the operation of the program. This can lead to material consequences, increasing your chances of finding yourself defending the company in a government investigation or litigation or creating major obstacles in litigation.

Join Dykema to hear about some of the mistakes commonly made by companies as they design, implement and operate their compliance programs as well as how these mistakes lead to legal trouble down the road.
