We advise our clients on all compliance issues, i.e., complying with the standards of good and responsible corporate governance. We support the management bodies in their central task of preventing the violation of rules and laws and responding quickly, consistently, and correctly in the event of an incident.
Together with our clients, we develop a company-specific conceptual and organizational foundation for good compliance. This includes the formulation of internal procedures and rules of conduct on issues such as money laundering, corruption, insider trading, whistleblower programs, etc. We provide company employees with tailor-made training courses.
We advise our clients on specific incidents and are available when needed for the implementation of internal corporate investigations. We also represent our clients against regulatory and enforcement authorities.
The industries and areas of law in which compliance plays an important role are diverse: the essential nature of compliance in the financial market and the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries is well-known but, for example, the energy sector, the transport and logistics industry, and the real estate industry are equally affected by increasing regulatory requirements. Certain areas of law such as competition law, anti-corruption law, money laundering laws, data protection law, and tax law also affect almost all industries.
