White Collar Crime & Consumer Rights

Small businesses and multinational companies face growing legal challenges by various national and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies and consumer class action lawsuit filings.  Enforcement and litigation is intensifying. Crimes ranging from bribery and money laundering, to sanctions and securities violations, Medicare fraud, workplace violations, tax fraud, and the fallout from computer crime and widespread data breaches are all drawing more media attention and litigation and regulatory activity. Additionally, many countries aggressively seek to regulate conduct beyond their borders, and cooperation and information-sharing by law enforcement and regulatory authorities around the world is growing.

Legal News on Regulatory Complexity and Litigation Risk

The National Law Review publishes the latest cases, litigation, legislation news, and content, as it relates to white collar criminal activities, consumer protections, and other business criminal laws. Agency and regulatory enforcement by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission), CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Board), HHS (Health and Human Services), CMS (Office of Medicare & Medicaid Services), the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission), DOJ (Department of Justice), and others, are updated regularly by the National Law Review.

Updates on the National Law Review also extend to regulatory agencies across the globe. These include the UK Financial Conduct Authority, Autorité des Marchés Financiers in France, the Bundesbank and BaFin in Germany, and regulatory agencies in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and around the world. Visitors to the National Law Review will constantly find the latest regulatory actions, litigation related to criminal activities, which multinational corporations engage in.

Contributing authors address topics from whistleblower actions, qui tam actions, multijurisdictional legal matters, enforcement actions against corporations and government investigations of fraud and other criminal matters. Organizations facing civil and criminal liabilities in these, or other legal matters, will regularly find the latest guidance and reports on the National Law Review.

Some of the latest coverage visitors can read about on the National Law Review include SOX (Sarbanes Oxley) violations, Dodd-Frank Whistleblower decisions by SCOTUS, TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) violations, Medicare and Medicaid Fraud litigation, and data breach cases, both pre and post-GDPR. Visitors will also find cases related to the False Claims Act, SEC violations, insider trading, and other illegal white collar crimes, which are taking place daily, in the US and around the world.
