At a Consero Group corporate forum on compliance ethics in a week, Li will advise in-house counsel on how to comply with a US directive that is open to interpretation in his panel, “Breaking Bad: Mitigating FCPA Risk.”  He said: “Not every company has the same budget or resources or risk.  So you have to come to an internal assessment of your risk and determine what is your appropriate level of due diligence.”  Source: CorpCounsel
