Review of Securities & Commodities Regulation


In this article, the authors begin by describing the growth of global multi-enforcement actions, including “follow-on” prosecutions. They then turn to factors responsible for this growth: expansive extraterritorial enforcement by U.S. authorities, the rise in international cooperation, and new local laws and agencies. In the last section they outline strategies for companies to mitigate and deal with global risks as they arise.
