The scope of regulatory requirements, anti-corruption legislation and codes of conduct is growing and becoming more complex. Whether you are on a board, in senior management or a rank and file employee, the economic consequences of breach in any of these areas can be extremely far-reaching – for you and for your company. Our services are comprised of advice in the design of compliance programs, mainly so as to avoid non-compliance and to minimize legal repercussions, should they occur.
Working with CMS means working with lawyers who will always be at your side during crisis situations. Our goal is to design a successful, efficient and customised compliance programme which is closely aligned with your business’s needs.
We are familiar with the main legal areas to be addressed by compliance programmes: anti-corruption legislation, employment laws, international trade and export laws, data protection, corporate law, industrial and intellectual property rights, capital markets, medical and pharmaceutical products, product liability, taxation, environmental law, public procurement and competition law.
You can benefit from CMS’s extensive experience with international anti-corruption legislation, in particular with the USA (FCPA) and the UK (UK Bribery Act), which is particularly relevant for businesses with international operations.
