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 of conduct in any of these areas can be extremely far-reaching – for you and for your company.
Our services are comprised of advice on the design of compliance programmes, especially in relation to Law No. 20.393 on Criminal Liability of Legal Persons (Entities), so as to help you avoid non-compliance in these matters and to minimize legal repercussions, should they occur. Our goal is to design a successful and customised compliance programme which is closely aligned with your business’s needs.
Likewise, CMS services include advice on the improvement of 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’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.
