Building resilience in global regulatory frameworks

Building resilience in global regulatory frameworks

Regulatory compliance is a major concern for businesses across the globe, in every profession and sector of commerce. The legal frameworks within which organisations operate are evolving, often at high speed, with regulators seeking to extend and refine their power and influence.

As a global law firm, we help clients build resilience against increasingly complex regulation, both locally and internationally. This often involves cross-border and multi-jurisdictional support to ensure they achieve and maintain compliance across their organisation.

We have the experience and knowledge to bolster compliance in established regulatory frameworks, and we have the capability to provide rapid, detailed responses to new regulations and legal requirements.

At the heart of our approach is the belief that being compliant should not impose onerous burdens on an organisation and that the assimilation of regulatory demands should cause the minimum of disruption.

With investigations on the rise, we help clients to demonstrate their willingness to cooperate with whichever regulator is involved, with the intention of achieving a satisfactory outcome in the shortest time possible. We also ensure clients can mount swift and effective internal investigations and take appropriate steps as required.

In circumstances where investigations give rise to criminal proceedings, we advise companies and individuals in relation to potential liability issues and defence options. Our global network of offices means we are on hand when and where required for our clients’ best interests.
