Debevoise & Plimpton LLP lawyers authored a key chapter on U.S. enforcement of compliance expectations to the first edition of Global Investigations Review’s “The Guide to Compliance.” White collar partner Kara Brockmeyer, counsel Ivona Josipovic and associates Andreas Glimenakis and Berk Guler contributed a chapter to the guide entitled, “U.S. Compliance Enforcement.”
