Welcome to Compliance Hot Spots, our briefing on compliance, enforcement and government affairs. The Justice Department’s new guidance on compliance monitors is making waves—we’ve got some observations below from the general counsel to the hedge fund Point72. Plus: the NYT dropped a big investigation spotlighting white-collar penalties in the Trump era. And more: a Democrat-controlled U.S. House could mean work on the lobby and white-collar fronts. We’ll all be watching the returns tonight.

Please do send feedback on the election results and anything on your plate. I appreciate hearing from you about what’s on your plate—observations, trends, new clients and colleagues. I’m at [email protected] and 202-828-0315, or follow me on Twitter @cryanbarber.
