Partner David Simon was featured in a Compliance & Ethics article, “Compliance Challenges in India: Why Your Program May Not Translate,” in advance of the Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute where Simon will participate in a panel on the same topic. The article featured a whistleblower scenario and walked through suggested steps in-house counsel, outside U.S. counsel and Indian counsel may take to evaluate the issue. Simon provided insights from an outside counsel perspective and said, “I understand the real and legitimate morale and disruption concerns this scenario raises … I would recommend taking a few reasonable, but tailored investigative steps to test the ‘corrupt sales agent’ allegation.”
