Political Law subscription site
In response to scandals and media scrutiny, there is an unprecedented focus on the regulation of political activity in recent years.
Corporate compliance departments are required to comply with an array of complex laws and regulations. These detailed laws cover attempts to seek business from state and local government clients pay-to-play, providing gifts to public officials, electoral engagement, and hiring of employees from the public-sector. Violations of these regulations can have severe business consequences, including debarment from doing business in a jurisdiction for a period of years. Reputational injury may also limit business opportunities.
