Evaluating large corporations’ legal, regulatory, and compliance risks
Write a detailed introduction to the company which discusses when the company was formed, what the company makes or produces, significant events in the company’s history, and any notable recent achievements or disasters (not to exceed 300 words for this section).
A discussion of the firm’s most significant business strengths/advantages, and the firm’s most significant competitive weaknesses/disadvantages (not to exceed 300 words for this section).
Litigation/Lawsuits – A discussion of at least two significant lawsuits of your choosing. These must be lawsuits that the company has been involved in during the past 24 months or is currently involved. The discussion of each lawsuit should identify the parties to the litigation, the central issue being litigated in detail, and whether the outcome of the lawsuit might have a significant impact on the company in some way. (hint: use your favorite search engine to learn about recent lawsuits).
Regulatory Issues – Your paper should discuss at least two major regulatory issues the company is dealing with now. Your discussion should identify the regulatory issues, explain what is happening and whether the situation’s resolution may have any significant impact on the company’s operations. As a reminder, a regulatory issue generally involves situations where a government entity is attempting to require the company to comply with some rule, law, or policy.
