Global Compliance Lawyer Stephen Martin Joins Arnold & Porter
DENVER, February 25, 2016 -- Arnold & Porter LLP announced today that Stephen Martin has joined the firm as partner, resident in the Denver office.
Mr. Martin focuses his practice on global compliance matters, risk assessment and management, and advising companies in connection with corporate internal and governmental investigations. He works with clients in a number of different industries to develop, implement and enhance compliance and ethics programs to address a broad range of potential risks, including anti-corruption/anti-bribery (FCPA and UK Bribery Act), antitrust, privacy, cyber-security, data protection and information management, Dodd-Frank Act, environmental, and corporate social responsibility matters.
Mr. Martin began his career as an Assistant Attorney General for the state of Missouri, and subsequently served as an Assistant US Attorney for the District of Columbia. He later worked in-house in various roles as legal counsel and as lead compliance officer for several major corporations, during which time he worked on governmental and internal investigations, litigation, and compliance, including designing and implementing broad-based compliance programs. Mr. Martin also was integral in the creation and development of a corporate compliance consulting practice at an Am Law 100 law firm.
“Stephen is a valuable addition to Arnold & Porter and his practice has natural synergies with our firm wide competencies, including global compliance, governmental investigations and risk management matters,” said Arnold & Porter Chairman Richard M. Alexander.
Added Timothy Macdonald, head of the firm’s Denver office, “A well-respected and talented advisor who has successfully represented clients and companies facing a broad range of compliance issues, Stephen’s arrival further deepens our service offerings in Denver and throughout the firm. His experience strengthens our ability to support clients at this critical time when the Department of Justice has recently placed an increased emphasis on corporate compliance, as evidenced by the addition of the Department’s newly-created position of Compliance Counsel.”
