O’Melveny’s Lichentbaum Quoted in FCPA Report on Social Media and Compliance

March 04, 2015 O’Melveny & Myers partner Greta Lichtenbaum is quoted in the March 4, 2015, The FCPA Report piece, “Social Media: Navigating the Next Generation of FCPA Compliance.”  The article, the first in a series focused on the advantages and pitfalls of social media, discusses how companies can use social media to aid with due diligence of third parties and target companies.  Due diligence teams, whether they are researching a third party or a potential target company, want all relevant information, the article explains.  “Whenever you do due diligence on a person or a legal entity, you look at whatever is in the public domain,” Lichtenbaum told the publication.  “That may well include social media.  Whatever people hold out there in the public domain is fair game . . . it’s a great source,” she said.

Lichtenbaum is a member of O’Melveny’s White Collar Defense and Corporate Investigations Practice and resides in the Firm’s Washington, DC office.
