Compliance Week taps Nathan Garrett on multijurisdictional investigations
Compliance Week magazine recently featured Partner Nathan Garrett in an article titled “How to Handle a Multi-Jurisdictional Investigation,” which addressed various considerations that should be made throughout the course of a complex multinational investigation.
“Long gone are the days when companies only had to contend with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice in the course of an anti-corruption investigation,” Compliance Week reported. “Large-scale investigations into bribery and corruption are now a multinational affair.”
In the article, Garrett told Compliance Week that the biggest challenge multinational companies will face during an investigation is the diverse rules of the game. “How in-house or outside counsel go about conducting the investigation can, and should be, affected by the rules that apply in the respective jurisdictions where the investigations are taking place,” he said.
“In global investigations, you must have foreign expertise,” Garrett continued. “Each foreign government has so many unspoken, unwritten rules that apply and cultural considerations that knowing how to navigate local rules — both written and unwritten — is essential.”
