Leaders that are Lighting the Path for Legal and Compliance Report

Leaders that are Lighting the Path for Legal and Compliance Report

Over the past year the Corporate Counsel and Compliance Exchange has welcomed 100s of leading General Counsels and Chief Compliance Officers from Europe’s biggest brands to drive transformational change for In House Counsels.

Transformation of the legal sector is a given, but at the Corporate Counsel and Compliance Exchange we didn’t want to sit back and watch. We wanted to become catalysts for change, drivers of innovation and enablers of digitalisation. From hosting a whole array of discussion groups, one to one business meetings and VIP gatherings we have worked with the leading experts in their given fields of legal technology and consultancy, the most senior law firms partners and the General Counsels and Chief Compliance Officers to pin point areas for transformational change.

This year, we asked our community what ‘change’ meant to them to find out where best we could support our legal community.

We hope you enjoy our report.

Creating a Risk Mitigation Process that Stands Up to Regulator Scrutiny with LexisNexis

Creating a Risk Mitigation Process that Stands Up to Regulator Scrutiny


Complete compliance risk avoidance is a laudable goal, but due to the complexity of global supply chains and reliance on third party networks – particularly when expanding into emerging markets – organizations increasingly recognize that a violation can happen, despite best intentions.

In 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) acknowledged the challenge that organizations face, and introduced a one-year pilot program as part of its “robust and transparent enforcement program targeting violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).” The program was then extended in 2017, until Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced on November 29, 2017 – in a speech marking the 40th anniversary since Congress enacted the FCPA – that the FCPA Pilot Program would be made permanent and expanded to offer even greater incentives for voluntary disclosure of potential FCPA violations.

Companies must design an effective compliance strategy to comply with the ever-changing FCPA program.

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY – The case for building a robust sanctions compliance programme


The increasing number of enforcement agencies and their increasing vehemence in enforcement makes the risk of not keeping up substantial.

More than half a century ago, the U.N. Security Council (UNSC) established the first sanctions regime on Southern Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe. Since 1966, the UNSC has enacted 26 sanctions regimes, 13 of which continue today. Such small numbers belie the complexity organisations face maintaining sanctions compliance.

Sanctions regimes were devised as political apparatuses to prevent escalation or settle conflicts, curtail nuclear proliferation, and counter terrorism and human rights violations. While the current consolidated U.N. sanctions list only covers 13 sanctions regimes, the document is 158 pages long, reflecting the extensive collection of individuals, entities or States subject to sanctions. U.N. sanctions regimes are subsequently adopted by supranational bodies like the European Union, as well as individual nations. In addition, countries may have their own sanctions lists related to specific regional threats or other national security considerations.
