Regulatory & Compliance

 

Complying with all relevant laws, policies and regulations is critical given the financial, legal and reputational risks associated with non-compliance. It takes planning, vigilance and excellent legal support, particularly when investigations turn into prosecutions.

We have deep experience across the major areas of regulatory and compliance risk, including:

  • Anti-money laundering, including reducing risk from financial crime
  • Competition and consumer law
  • Financial service regulation and licensing
  • Privacy, including in online environments
  • Insurance, including product liability
  • Regulatory investigations and prosecutions, and
  • Work health and safety and other workplace risks.
