Mark E. Schamel talks to Law360 about the recent spate of corruption cases in the energy industry, noting that the “international footprint and the financial reward is so significant that it can lead to clouded judgment. … Add in the inconsistency of regulations between countries and even between political parties in our country, and the goal posts are moving with hundreds of millions of dollars in play." For general counsel and regulators seeking to reduce corruption on this space, Schamel suggests fostering a "culture of transparency. Get in front of problems and don't try to hide them.” He adds that government needs “to stop flip-flopping on policy and have consistency" in energy regulation.
