Barnes & Thornburg launches Compliance Practice Group
Barnes & Thornburg has announced the launch of a Compliance Practice Group dedicated to developing and deploying compliance programs in today’s ever-changing and complex regulatory landscape.
The practice group leverages the combined strengths of 70 diverse lawyers from 13 office locations throughout the U.S. with deep experience in antitrust, fraud, anti-corruption / anti-bribery, international trade, securities, healthcare, cybersecurity, and environmental compliance. Partners Tabitha Meier of the Indianapolis office and Karen McGee of the Washington, D.C., office serve as co-chairs of the group.
The group formed after the arrival of Meier in November 2015 from a publicly-traded global diversified industrial company, where she served as compliance counsel and led the company’s overall compliance initiatives.
“Barnes & Thornburg attorneys have been counseling clients on compliance issues for years. What we’ve been able to do by establishing this group is offer clients a one-stop resource for delivering tailored compliance solutions,” said Meier. “Our attorneys have extensive national and international experience as in-house counsel, seasoned practitioners, and government agency investigators. We take the time to learn our client’s business so we understand the issues faced across a broad spectrum of compliance areas in order to deliver programs, not just policies.”
Barnes & Thornburg works with both publicly held and private companies in a variety of compliance-related capacities. Clients include domestic companies exporting outside the U.S., multinational companies, federal contractors, IT firms, medical firms and more. Our Compliance Practice Group lawyers have advised clients in developing compliance programs, training, conducting compliance-related due diligence and investigations, responding to government inquiries and defending against government actions and whistleblower claims.
Throughout the year, the Compliance Practice Group will be hosting a variety of in-person events and webinars, including some eligible for continuing legal education credits. Upcoming event information for In Compliance: Insights for Compliance Professionals can be viewed here.
Grand Rapids attorneys who will be part of the practice group include Charlie Denton, Don Lawless, and Robert Stead.
