Compliance is no longer a catchphrase but an essential element of any company’s operations. Our experienced team, which includes EU and US lawyers, helps to navigate through all applicable rules and develop the most efficient solutions. In cases where a company suspects or has already found itself in trouble, we help to carry out in-depth investigations and provide remedies that would mitigate any negative consequences to the maximum extent.

Whether it is pre- or post-acquisition compliance due diligence, internal or regulatory investigation, employee disciplinary/internal procedure matters, responding to the authorities or follow-up enforcement action – our team is on board.

  • Anti-Corruption and Fraud
