PHILADELPHIA, September 13, 2021: Amy Schuh, a former corporate senior vice president and chief ethics and compliance officer, rejoins Morgan Lewis today as a partner resident in Philadelphia. Amy, who has more than 15 years of in-house experience in the technology and life sciences sectors, focuses on corporate compliance and ethics counseling and investigations.
“Amy has spearheaded a global team and driven operational excellence during her long tenure of in-house experience,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “She is uniquely positioned to address our clients’ multijurisdictional compliance and ethics-related legal needs having served in three major corporations.”
Amy also handles internal and government investigations and advises on M&A due diligence. She builds, enhances, and streamlines internal compliance policy and procedures involving global anti-corruption, trade, and privacy matters.
“Our clients will value Amy’s particular practical experience in developing and operationalizing compliance policies,” said J. Gordon Cooney, Jr., leader of Morgan Lewis’s global litigation practice. “We are excited to have her join our robust corporate-compliance counseling and investigations team to help guide our clients through today’s complex emerging regulatory environment, including in the privacy and trade arena, as well as COVID’s impact on potential FCPA liability for companies due to third parties and due diligence and compliance programs more generally.
Amy, who was a Morgan Lewis associate earlier in her career, shares the firm’s commitment to pro bono. She co-founded and co-chaired a leading technology company’s pro bono program that collaborated with National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) to help veterans access critical benefits, and she now serves as co-chair to the Board of Directors for NVLSP.
The white collar and life sciences teams at Morgan Lewis have expanded in recent months to include partner Sandra Moser, a former Fraud Section chief at the US Department of Justice, and partner Suzanne Filippi, also a former in-house counsel. Sandra represents companies and executives in a wide range of matters involving enforcement agencies such as the Justice Department and US Securities and Exchange Commission; Suzanne focuses on US and global corporate transactions.
