Regulatory & Compliance

All commercial organisations will encounter regulatory issues which can have severe consequences if they are not tackled effectively.

Anti-corruption protection

The passing of the Bribery Act 2010 means that the UK now has stringent legislation preventing individuals and organisations from taking part in bribery and corruption. We have extensive experience of advising clients on anti-corruption – and in particular Bribery Act – matters. We can provide training and guidance and help your business to establish effective internal procedures designed to meet the challenges businesses face in the new, stricter environment.

For clients who need to comply with internal rules and regulations of international funding organisations, as well as the laws of the jurisdictions in which they operate, it’s particularly vital that their internal systems are carefully tailored with anticorruption in mind.  We can help with this, and also assist in negotiations with international funders over any challenges that have arisen.

Regulatory Compliance

We are experienced in dealing with a variety of regulatory issues, and recent experience is particularly in the sectors of hospitality & leisure and premium rate (or phone-paid) services.  We give practical advice about the existing regulatory framework and devise strategies to assist clients preparing for changes in the law or Codes of Practice.

We represent clients involved in regulatory investigations and which become the subject of action by a variety of regulatory bodies.
