Changes in the regulatory arena have resulted in the authorities taking a more collaborative approach, increasing the reach of the arm of the law in the UK and US. The risk of failing to comply is greater than ever before.
Even firms in sectors that are not regulated are affected by regulatory requirements such as those relating to competition law, money laundering and financial crime. It is vital that businesses keep up to speed with developments and receive sound advice on ongoing supervision and compliance procedure issues.
Our Regulatory and Compliance Group brings together both UK and US lawyers with extensive experience in guiding individual and corporate clients through the complex maze of legislation and regulation at home and abroad.
We were one of the first law firms in the UK to develop a compliance product, Mishcon Assure, to assist our clients to understand the ambit of the new UK bribery legislation. In addition, our US lawyers have extensive experience in advising international businesses on the operation and effect of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 (FCPA).
Our experience spans contentious and non-contentious arenas and is cross-departmental. Our data protection specialists ensure our clients’ policies maximise the value of their data whilst reducing the risk of regulatory sanction.
Our goal is to ensure our clients operate sound policies and procedures in compliance with relevant regulations. In the event of a breach, we act swiftly to minimise the potential consequences of non- compliance including managing reputational issues arising out of exposure to regulatory investigations and proceedings.
We have an extensive network of similar specialists all over the world, as well as relationships with investigators and prosecutors both in the private and public sectors. Our vast experience of working with regulatory authorities helps us to achieve exceptional results for our clients.
