A Bain & Company study concludes that the California Regulatory environment stands out as being both costly and uncertain. State regulatory enforcement, along with attorney general actions, represent a critical risk for corporations in California's highly politicized environment.

This one-hour CLE presentation will provide you with an insightful understanding of the nature of regulatory enforcement in California. You will take away important risk assessment considerations, as well as strategies for dealing with state investigations and enforcement actions.
