Take a look at the Small Business Advocacy Blog to read the conclusion to SBAC member Charles Krugel’s “A Lawyerâ€™s Perspective: Responding To Regulatory Agency Complaints â€“ Part 2 of 2: Disclosure.”
In the conclusion to the Blog series, Krugel discusses how much and what to disclose when responding to a complaint from a regulatory agency.
“As a general rule, it is not always necessary for a responding company to utilize legal or business counsel for the response,” said Krugel. “However, if the responding company is not attuned to the specific regulatory agencyâ€™s style or the alleged violations, and it does not have the benefit of counsel to assist in their response, it could adversely affect its chance of receiving a favorable response.”
