Hong Kong-based investigations attorneys Vasu Muthyala and Shaun Wu spoke with the Asia Business Law Journal about top concerns for companies operating in Asia.

Drawing from their experience representing Asian clients in government investigations, Mr. Muthyala and Mr. Wu discuss the importance of general counsel in Asia having a strong understanding of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

The resulting article also quotes Mr. Muthyala on the recent push for data localization laws by several nations including Russia, China, and Vietnam: “Because so many companies today deal primarily in information — and even those with ‘traditional’ brick-and-mortar models main­tain an increasing amount of data about their customers and suppli­ers — these regulations impose a significant burden on multinational corporations that would otherwise consolidate their networks and data storage elsewhere.”
