January 18, 2017 –  Nicolas Tollet has been selected for inclusion in Global Investigations Review’s “Inside In-House” inaugural survey of the top investigations and compliance specialists worldwide.

Tollet was the only French lawyer profiled among a group of practitioners who hail from countries around the world, including the U.S., U.K., Brazil, Mexico, Norway and Canada. Among the other specialists profiled were general counsel to Walmart and Novartis, the chief compliance officer for SNC Lavalin and General Electric’s chief investigative counsel.

The selection came after his team at Technip received the award for “Best Compliance Department 2016” from Leaders’ League (Trophées du Droit). Tollet joined Hughes Hubbard’s Paris office in December as counsel in the firm’s Anti-Corruption and Internal Investigations practice area. 

In his profile, Tollet said he feels grateful that the European Compliance Network, which he founded in 2014, is becoming a success across Europe and that participants in the network come in large numbers to meet other compliance professionals.

“The compliance profession is still under construction and structuring itself, so providing a free and informal forum and seeing compliance professionals of all types using the forum to interact and share experiences is gratifying,” he said. “This development occurred at the same time as I was confirmed to teach anti-corruption compliance at the University of California, Berkeley.”
