Risk Management

I represent and advise clients of all sizes in the defense of regulatory agency investigations and enforcement actions, conducting internal investigations and establishing effective corporate compliance policies. I am often retained by audit committees, special committees and general counsel to conduct internal investigations. I advise clients on the complex issues surrounding cooperating with investigators and waiving the attorney-client privilege.

I also advise clients on the design, implementation and testing of compliance programs and strategies. I have drafted and reviewed numerous corporate ethics and compliance programs and have counseled clients on compliance with a wide range of regulations. I continually update these assistance measures and update clients on recent developments and changes in the law.

  • Premises Liability
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Public Access Compliance

One of the most effective ways to protect your business and mitigate risk is to prevent problems and liabilities before they occur. To that end, I regularly advise clients on fraud, abuse and other regulatory issues. I also perform risk assessments designed to avoid situations that might lead to government investigations or litigation, as well as work with clients to develop and enhance their compliance programs. This includes negotiating corporate integrity agreements with the federal Office of Inspector General and assisting clients with fulfilling their obligations under such agreements.
