Compliance - White Collar
The Compliance Area offers our clients a modern view of the application of law, which is focused on the prevention of legal risks. A solid team of professionals, who are specialized in different practice areas, enables us to offer a dynamic and comprehensive answer vis-à-vis the growing need of organizations to adopt effective procedures for compliance with legal requirements applicable to the development of their business activities.
Compliance Policies: The Firm provides advice on the design and establishment of compliance policies so that they can be used as an effective tool to prevent illegal events. Regarding organizations that implement programs based on foreign laws, such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act (UKBA), we also provide guidance on the adaptation of their contents to local regulations.
Internal Investigations and Litigation: The Firm has actively assisted clients in the development of internal investigations due to possible violations of regulations. For example, we have participated in proceedings relating to computer crimes, hacking, unauthorized access to e-mails, trade secrets violations, confidentiality, fraud and harassment. As part of a comprehensive approach to the issues presented by our clients, we have counseled them on the requirement and convenience of bringing legal claims in connection with such violations and we have represented them in their prosecution.
E-Forensics: The Firm has wide experience and provides clients with all the tools involved in computer forensics. These tools have helped us to successfully deal with different internal and external processes, some of which were connected with computer crimes (e.g. hacking and computer fraud) and others in which digital findings were conclusive for the outcome of the issue (e.g. collecting evidence of the activity through a computer network and the preservation of digital documents and of their contents). Our experience has enabled us to work closely with specialized staff from the police forces and the courts in different types of IT expert appraisals.
Relations with the Government, Public Officers and Political Parties: Our members usually advice organizations on their promotional activities (congresses, trips, gifts and entertainment) and in the possible risks posed by such activities in the light of anti-corruption laws applicable in our country. The Firm has appeared before electoral courts on behalf of its clients to answer information requests based on the provisions in the Financing of Political Parties Act.
