Law360 Quotes James Benjamin on Culture of Compliance

Akin Gump litigation partner James Benjamin was quoted by Law360 for its article “5 Tips For Fending Off Insider Trading Accusations” on the topic of effective compliance programs.

Benjamin said that, however detailed and informative a company’s compliance program may be, it won’t matter if the policy isn’t followed. Thus, he says that a culture of compliance needs to be fostered: “It’s just essential that policies are clearly communicated and that employees take it seriously and follow them.”
