Corporate Compliance & Investigations

We provide preventive counseling and remedial advice and techniques to protect commercial stakeholder value and the moral and civic integrity of our clients’ officers and staff. Corporations and governmental bodies are among our clients, whom we advise on compliance and regulatory matters, in the Nordic region and internationally.

Compliance policies are the key in companies’ risk management. We work in close cooperation with our clients in various industries, preparing, implementing and monitoring tailor-made compliance programs aimed at practical, business-minded and effective pre-emption of risks. Our lawyers assist in risk analysis as well as crisis management and internal investigations to mitigate damage and manage liability arising from corporate compliance issues.
