Compliance & Investigations

There is a high le­vel of pu­blic awa­ren­ess that com­pa­nies must ob­serve the laws and re­gu­la­ti­ons go­verning re­spon­si­ble cor­po­rate con­duct. Com­pli­ance has long since be­come an in­te­gral part of good cor­po­rate go­ver­nance.

This is an is­sue for small and me­dium-si­zed busi­nes­ses as well. If there is no com­pli­ance ma­nage­ment sys­tem in the com­pany or the sys­tem is not tailo­red to the com­pany's risks, there is no se­cure pro­tec­tion. Among other things, this can lead to con­side­ra­ble loss of re­pu­ta­tion and dra­ma­tic eco­no­mic risks, such as da­ma­ges or fi­nes.

Com­pli­ance is ea­sier said than done. An ounce of pre­ven­tion is al­ways worth a pound of cure. We help mi­ni­mize com­pli­ance risks in your ent­ire com­pany or mo­du­larly in in­di­vi­dual de­part­ments, re­gard­less of whe­ther they are tax, hu­man re­sour­ces or le­gal, purchasing or sa­les de­part­ments.

But what to do if a com­pli­ance vio­la­tion is sus­pec­ted or has al­re­ady been made pu­blic? In this case, the facts can be cla­ri­fied by neu­tral con­sul­tants. This is be­cause an in-house in­vest­ment in­vol­ves a mul­ti­tude of chal­len­ges and risks. We can meet these chal­len­ges thanks to our ex­per­tise and many years of ex­pe­ri­ence. We as­sist you with an in­de­pen­dent, com­pre­hen­sive and ra­pid in­ves­ti­ga­tion to in­itiate ci­vil, la­bor and cri­mi­nal law coun­ter­mea­su­res.

Our ex­perts, with many years of ex­pe­ri­ence from na­tio­nal and in­ter­na­tio­nal pro­jects, can pro­vide you with com­pre­hen­sive, risk-ori­en­ted sup­port in in­tro­du­cing or im­pro­ving your com­pli­ance and cor­po­rate or­ga­niza­tion and can also iden­tify risks for your com­pany or even da­mage that has been cau­sed de­li­be­ra­tely or un­in­ten­tio­nally by em­ployees or out­siders.
