Compliance reviews are at the core of our capabilities.  We have conducted numerous corporate compliance reviews – both global and targeted – in over 30 countries.  Our international team of experts have extensive experience of working in over 100 countries, as well as of approaches taken by regulatory authorities all over the world.

We have considerable experience assisting clients to develop robust compliance programs to address bribery and corruption, money laundering, sanctions abuse, general fraud, accounting fraud and misappropriation risks.

Our international team of experts have extensive experience in:

  • Pre-emptive assessments to identify potential compliance risk areas and enhancements to processes and controls;
  • Reactive reviews in instances where companies have identified or been alerted to areas of specific concern; and
  • Reviews for companies operating under Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) compliance monitorships.

What Makes Us Different

Our Bespoke Framework

We have developed our own bespoke risk assessment framework, mapped against leading international benchmarks and independently verified, to support the design or improvement of compliance programs including third party due diligence procedures, internal financial controls and system effectiveness testing. Our expertise, combined with our in-depth knowledge of a client's operations and historical risk areas, is an effective way to ensure the most value is obtained from a compliance and internal controls review.
