Holland & Knight's Compliance Services and Education Teams, along with attorneys throughout the firm, collaborated on the 2019 edition of the Practising Law Institute's (PLI) Corporate Compliance Answer Book.

The book serves as a guide in a question and answer format, helping readers to use risk assessment, apply gap analyses, conduct internal investigations, develop records management programs, satisfy labor and employment mandates, environmental rules, lobbying and campaign finance laws, export control regulations, and FCPA anti-bribery standards, and make voluntary disclosures of illegalities, among other topics.
