About Global Regulatory Enforcement Law Blog

Global clients in major markets increasingly encounter parallel regulatory enforcement regimes and proceedings with cross-border impacts. Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement (GRE) practice group is comprised of lawyers equipped to handle enforcement and regulatory issues across those regimes and disciplines, and to do so with deep experience in numerous industries. To ensure that our audience is receiving timely updates on the global regulatory and enforcement issues affecting their different practices and industries, Reed Smith’s GRE practice group is pleased to launch Global Regulatory Enforcement Law Blog.

On our blog, we will regularly report and analyze key regulatory and enforcement legal issues in the United States and across the globe, including issues affecting antitrust and competition, international trade and national security, government contracts, government and white collar investigations, public policy, and securities. The blog is written and maintained by our attorneys in GRE. It will list postings by category and will maintain searchable archives.
