Hogan Lovells’ Steering the Course II report examines the approaches, concerns, and regional differences of multinational corporates across the globe on all aspects of AB&C.

Opinion research was conducted amongst 700 chief compliance officers (CCOs), heads of legal, or equivalent (referred to collectively as “compliance leaders” in the report), working in multinational companies with at least 2,000 employees. Respondents had been in their role for at least a year, and were from the following markets: the UK (100), the U.S. (150), France (100), Germany (100), Spain (100), and Asia (150 interviews: China, Singapore, and Japan).

The study focused on four high-risk sectors at the heart of global AB&C regulation and investigations: technology, media and telecommunications (TMT); life sciences and pharmaceuticals; energy, minerals and natural resources; and transportation, including aviation and automotive.

The research was designed and conducted by Man Bites Dog and Coleman Parkes in late 2019 and early 2020. All reported figures have been rounded to their nearest whole number.
