The Enforcement Angle: Corporate Compliance Monitors

Join Sidley for the Environmental Law Institute’s People Places Planet Podcast series, “The Enforcement Angle.” Through this series, Sidley partners discuss state and federal enforcement of environmental laws and regulations with senior enforcement officials and thought leaders on environmental enforcement in the United States and globally. The featured guests offer their insights into the challenging environmental issues facing corporations today.

Increasingly, independent third parties – better known as “corporate compliance monitors” – are appointed to oversee a company’s compliance following the settlement of a criminal or, sometimes, civil enforcement case.

In this episode, Justin Savage, partner and global co-leader of the Environmental practice, speaks with colleague and partner Ike Adams from Sidley’s Securities Enforcement and Regulatory group, and Michele Edwards and Brad Wilson of global advisory firm StoneTurn. The trio discusses corporate compliance monitorships, a perennial hot topic in DOJ enforcement, particularly in the environmental space over the last five years. Listen here.
