What is the U.S. government’s policy on compliance programs? As an antitrust attorney or a compliance and ethics practitioner, you are understandably concerned about this. Certainly you want your company or your client to have a strong ethics and compliance program to help keep the company and its people on the right path and doing the right thing. In any company, however, even the most ethical, it is necessary to allocate resources where the return is greatest. So it helps to be able to tell management that a dollar invested in compliance and ethics not only is the right thing to do, but also helps protect the company and will matter to those in government.
