“Companies that operate internationally but don’t have operations on the ground in the United States can still be exposed to U.S. laws in a variety of different ways," he says.
In this video interview with Suparna Goswami of Information Security Media Group, Haley also discusses:
- How companies can implement compliance programs;
- Why DOJ’s compliance guidance matters to companies outside the U.S.;
- What compliance practitioners have to say about the guidance.
At Covington & Burling LLP, Haley leads a white-collar and anti-corruption practice in Africa and is a vice chair of the firm’s broader Africa practice. He has extensive experience representing clients before U.S. regulators.
