COMPLIANCE

Compliance, which comprises a range of measures necessary to ensure proper conduct of a company, its executive members and its employees with respect to all statutory provisions is essential for the minimization of risk in a company. We aim at maximising the effective avoidance of executives’ liability.

Today the risk of damage claims against executives – often amounting to millions – is higher than ever. This has many reasons, such as an altered perception of the public and the media, in addition to amended statutory and regulatory framework conditions.

Undoubtedly, there is a legal obligation to set up a system of organized compliance (“compliance organisation”) within a company. This duty applies not only to large (listed) companies but affects all business entities, especially medium-sized companies.

The aim of our compliance service is to ensure fulfilment of legal obligations in co-operation with you, thereby protecting you as a proactive entrepreneur and company executive from personal liability. We support you and the responsible corporate bodies throughout the process of establishing a compliance organisation.

More_individuality
We attach particular importance on an approach adjusted to the size and risk exposure of your company. In other words, our proposals for a medium-sized company will differ from those for a large or listed company

The aim of our compliance advisory services is to secure implementation of all measures that are indispensable for

  • ensuring that the company’s organisation conforms to all legal requirements,
  • being ideally prepared in case irregularities or crises occur,
  • achieving maximum success in defending executives or the company against damage claims in case of irregularities or crises in the company.
