New York, NY, June 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Leading worldwide intellectual property law firm Grimes LLC and former New York prosecutor Robert Altchiler, of Counsel to Grimes LLC, announce the launch of a new White Collar, Regulatory Compliance and Internal Investigations practice area.
Grimes LLC's new practice area strengthens Grimes LLC's core practice areas, including intellectual property enforcement, anti-counterfeiting and litigation, while expanding upon Grimes LLC's commitment to serving the needs of their clients in all aspects of their businesses. Grimes LLC attorneys and Altchiler will work closely with clients to investigate, monitor, prevent and, if necessary, mitigate exposure through customization of compliance programs and development and implementation of corporate policies, executive and employee training and education programs.
Grimes LLC's new practice area coincides with a demonstrable focus by government authorities on new, creative ways to apply criminal laws and to seek greater, harsher penalties. In recent years, the U.S. Government has focused extensively on public corruption matters and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in particular. Businesses and executive leadership in all industries must be keenly aware of these laws and take deliberate action to monitor compliance, prevent violation and, if necessary, mitigate exposure.Chuck Grimes
