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, in senior management or a rank-and-file employee, the economic consequences of breach of conduct in any of these areas can be far-reaching – for you and your company. 

Our services consist of advice on the design of compliance programmes, especially in relation to Law No. 20.393 on Criminal Liability of Legal Persons (Entities), 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 the needs of your business.

In addition, CMS services include advice on improving your compliance programmes, assisting you through 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.

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