Corporate Governance & Compliance

Corporate Governance is a wide concept, covering all aspects of how a company is run (inc. the rules governing boards of directors, supervisory boards, shareholders etc.) To run efficiently and avoid conflicts between owners, managers, staff and investors, companies need to develop appropriate procedures and policies.

The ever-expanding list of laws and regulations that apply to companies, particularly regarding the liability of management board members, requires internal procedures to be constantly monitored and adapted to an increasingly complex legal environment

We help clients to ensure their businesses run smoothly and adapt as necessary to ensure compliance with all applicable legal norms and standards.

We help to create, and support the implementation of, corporate regulations, codes of conduct and corporate governance rules. We protect our clients from the risk of financial liability and the loss of reputation which can occur as a result of infringing legal norms.

Our team of experts has considerable experience in advising on corporate and commercial law, capital markets, taxes, competition, labour law, personal data protection, IP/IT, AML procedures and public procurement.
