Jessica helps clients—specifically companies, their Audit Committees or individual executives—respond to issues that arise through whistleblower hotlines or government inquiries of every sort. She works with them to conduct internal investigations and advises and defends them in government investigations and enforcement actions, whether brought by U.S. or international regulators. Jessica has counseled clients in a range of industries, including banking, food, oil and gas and technology, to name just a few. She has extensive experience with the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), state Attorneys General, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Commerce Department, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and several other government agencies.

Jessica also assists clients with proactive compliance measures, finding creative ways to develop and implement formal compliance programs and processes and defending those programs to regulators. She has also helped clients navigate matters involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, antitrust offenses, economic and trade sanctions, securities violations, False Claims Act and trade secrets.
