Compliance

Colombia

All companies face risks associated to money laundering, corruption and smuggling of goods, that may result in devastating consequences and damages.

Our Compliance team advises local and international clients, on a broad spectrum of Compliance related matters, both locally and globally where we have more than 400 Corporate Crime, Compliance and Forensics lawyers.

We advise clients in developing, implementing and improving governance frameworks and compliance programs, systems and controls.

We also advise clients in connection with internal investigations, frequently with cross-border and multijurisdictional components, where it is key to integrate and put to work our global reach, our comprehensive practice and sector groups, and CMS Evidence forensic tools.

We have leading technology in-house, supported by one of the largest dedicated teams of any major law firm. For clients, this means they can save time, money and effort during what can be the most pressurised and crucial stage of a contentious matter.

Our team, in close coordination with our Corporate Crime and Forensics lawyers, as wells as with CMS labour and data protection experts, assist clients with, due diligence to evaluate whether companies’ compliance programs are appropriate to prevent and control the identified risks and comply with applicable law an in M&A and real estate transactions, to verify if target companies have adequate compliance systems or if there are specific risks on the assets to be acquired, associated with successor liability or “extinction of domain”.
