Compliance
Compliance - ranked: tier 1

Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP

Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP has ‘deep knowledge and experience of anti-corruption legislation and practices from both an international and national perspective’. The Paris-based team has strong domestic and international expertise and also benefits from the firm's leading US and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) capabilities, which are a major asset. The Paris practice advises leading French and international corporations on the implementation of anti-corruption programmes, and was also retained by several key clients to advise on the first AFA-led audits. Finally, a combined French and US team is assisting Airbus with various compliance issues and high-profile UK, French and US investigations. Key names include Bryan Sillaman; Michael Huneke, who ‘is a voice of reason when it comes to compliance matters’; and counsel Nicolas Tollet, who provides ‘outstanding support in designing anti-corruption programmes and whose knowledge of best practices and ability to deliver practical and customised advice are greatly appreciated’. The team was also strengthened by the arrival of Olivier Dorgans as counsel from Brown Rudnick LLP.
