with a sense of proportion.
Already the mere suspicion of unlawful behaviour – or “non-compliance” – can significantly impact the reputation of a company regardless of its size, legal format or industry sector. Irrespective of their headquarter’ location internationally operating companies must comply with a growing number of foreign regulations such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act 2010 or the French Loi Sapin II 2016. As cross-border law enforcement is continuously increasing, companies also need to face strengthened scrutiny by international authorities.
A consistent, risk-based Compliance Management System (CMS) enables a company to systematically prevent, detect and respond to misconduct. This does not only reliably reduce liability risks for companies, entrepreneurs and employees – it also increases the transparency and quality of corporate processes, enhances business opportunities and drives attractivity for employees, customers, business partners and investors. This is where our tailored advisory approach kicks off: compliance with a sense of proportion.
