Whatever your business, you are expected to be compliant with a plethora of regulations. Such regulations change from time to time due to changes in legislation and it is imperative that a business stays up-to-date. Failure to remain compliant often leads to investigation and civil or criminal prosecution. We support our clients’ compliance requirements and ensure their risk of breach is nullified or minimal as far as possible.
We also represent individuals under investigation by local authorities and government bodies.
We facilitate the creation of an effective regulatory approach across the business. Our expertise lies in drafting policy and strategic statements and thereafter monitoring the effectiveness of policy thereafter. We support our clients with regulatory checks and carry out assessments in terms of the expectations of the regulator concerned.
