Compliance and Regulatory Issues

Regulatory and compliance frameworks – the set of laws, regulations, and guidelines that organizations are required to adhere to in their operations, and the conduct of their businesses, are constantly developing.

Our team assists attorneys based in various jurisdictions, and we harness strong legal knowledge and hands-on participation of local laws and regulations.

Our services address legal, regulatory, and compliance issues in corporate governance, data protection and privacy, financial services, securities, public procurement and government contracts, telecommunications, real estate and infrastructure, food and drugs, intellectual property, employment, antitrust and competition, anti-bribery and corruption, and anti-money laundering, amongst others.

We assist clients in meeting their commercial objectives, including the conduct of legal due diligence reviews and the drafting of red-flag reports, the identification and review of key operational licenses and approvals, the assessment and compliance of manuals and procedures, and the preparation of legal memoranda on industry and jurisdiction specific regulatory frameworks. 

Our business approach to law, utilizing both our technical and practical expertise, allows us to design solutions that are precise and commercially relevant.
