Regulatory Compliance


“Clients praise the firm’s ‘depth and breadth of expertise in the government area,’ adding: ‘Also, they provide practical guidance which works in the business context. They are good business and legal advisers in the government law arena.’”

— Chambers USA

Regulatory investigations and enforcement can cripple your business, tie your team up in document requests, dampen productivity, and damage your reputation—and that’s all before the costs and risks of litigation enter the picture. The best defense is a good offense, taking a proactive approach to compliance by implementing systems and processes that minimize risk and exposure.  

Blank Rome’s compliance team can help you build a compliance program that meets your particular needs, incorporating industry, geographical, and jurisdictional regulatory requirements while accommodating your financial goals and business needs. Our team will help you assess your needs, audit your operations, and develop compliance and training programs that not only protect you in the event of environmental incidents, security breaches, or other regulatory violations, but offer corrective actions should they be needed. 

With our broad knowledge of local regulations and our multijurisdictional capabilities, we help clients within the United States and internationally address regulatory compliance issues. As businesses become more globalized and international business transactions become more complex, the ability to obtain counsel that addresses cross-jurisdictional issues is critical. 

Our attorneys work across a number of sectors to help clients meet regulatory compliance obligations, such as financial services (including Dodd-Frank regulatory reform), capital markets, healthcare, and international trade (including Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance), among others. We have strong relationships with members of regulatory agencies, giving us the ability to counsel clients with the latest information. 

Through our government relations team, we’re also able to advocate for clients when they have interests in pending or potential legislation before Congress, or policy issues before federal agencies. We have first-hand knowledge of legislative and regulatory developments and use this to help our clients develop focused and successful strategies that consider all branches of federal, state, and local governments.
