Delivering Favorable Results at Trial
We aggressively tackle trial work on behalf of our clients, when necessary. When cases go to trial, we have the resources and the experience to obtain favorable resolutions for our clients. In addition to numerous trials in federal and state courts in a wide number of jurisdictions, Kelley Drye’s experienced trial lawyers represent clients before regulatory and compliance agencies. Nothing can take the place of experience in the courtroom for an effective defense, and our firm delivers consistent results to our clients.
Investigations and Compliance Reviews Focused on Client Objectives
Kelley Drye lawyers bring decades of experience to successfully managing large, complex internal investigations on behalf of multinational organizations. We frequently provide regulatory and compliance counseling on business and industry risk long before government actions occur. We provide ongoing guidance to our clients’ operations to help them stay current to the changing elements of regulatory agencies’ requirements for financial, management and operational reporting and internal controls. As a result, the firm’s reputation and experience have led individuals and corporations to trust us to obtain the best results for their most challenging internal issues.
Kelley Drye provides clients with comprehensive legal advice on anti-money laundering (AML) rules and regulations, including compliance counseling and enforcement contexts. AML requirements, counterterrorist financing regimes, know-your-customer (KYC) rules, and asset blocking and reporting requirements continue to be increasingly complicated and sophisticated. Kelley Drye’s AML attorneys are well prepared to handle and solve enforcement problems, provide evaluations of your company’s existing AML policies and procedures, and to provide hands-on guidance to your company for creating and implementing new programs, incorporating best practices that meet with regulatory approval.
