Compliance

The scope of regulatory requirements, anti-corruption legislation and codes of conduct is growing and becoming more complex.  Whether you are on a board, senior management, or simply an employee, the economic consequences of breach of conduct in any of these areas can be far-reaching – for you and for your company. 

Our services include advice on the design of compliance programmes, especially in relation to Law No. 20.393 on Corporate Criminal Liability , so as to help you avoid non-compliance in these matters and minimize legal repercussions, should they occur. Our goal is to design a successful and customised compliance programme which is closely aligned with your business needs.

In addition, CMS services include advising on improving your compliance programmes, assisting you during the implementation of your programme and during a potential certification process, and helping in internal investigations if there are indications of irregularities within the company. 

Given the international nature of our firm, you can benefit from CMS’ extensive experience with international anti-corruption legislation, in particular with the US (FCPA) and the UK (UK Bribery Act), which is particularly relevant for businesses with international operations.

"The service is excellent. The team has got to know our company well"
