    Volkswagen Independent Monitorship

    Handpicked by the Department of Justice’s independent corporate compliance monitor/auditor, Kilpatrick Townsend serves in several key leadership roles — including deputy monitor for anti-fraud, ethics, and compliance — overseeing compliance reforms under the terms of Volkswagen AG’s (VW) plea agreement after VW admitted using software to manipulate emissions tests on diesel-powered cars sold in the U.S. This three-year, high-profile appointment demonstrates the firm’s strength as collaborative thought leaders in government enforcement and investigations and environmental law, while also illustrating the importance of building meaningful relationships with clients and colleagues.
