Which statement comes closest to your situation?

Compliance is on everyone’s lips today – what exactly is it? What good does that do me? And what does that cost me?

We offer:

  • Consulting and introduction to compliance (subject, background, meaning)
  • Analysis of current state and of core compliance risks
  • Recommendation of a concrete action plan with time and cost estimate

I have a rough idea about compliance and believe that our company must take action. But I don’t know what we actually need and how we should approach the issue in practice.

We offer:

  • Compliance refresher (current significance, key trends and developments)
  • Comprehensive analysis of current state and company-specific compliance risk analysis:
    1. Assistance in identifying, prioritising / evaluating and managing compliance risks based on general, industry and company-specific requirements
    2. Comprehensive legal analysis and advice in all core compliance risk areas (antitrust law, corruption, data protection)
    3. Review/advice on other compliance risk areas depending on their concrete relevance (e.g. money laundering, product safety/liability, export control, business secrets, intellectual property rights, avoidance of conflicts of interest)
  • Advice and support in the practical implementation of an individual set of measures based on recognised CMS standards (including IDW PS 980 and ISO 19600), legal literature and current case law, particularly in the following areas:
    1. Compliance culture, goals and communicatio
    2. Compliance organisation
    3. Compliance rules and processes
    4. Compliance trainings
    5. CMS testing and monitoring
  • Individual legal advice and ad hoc support on particularly urgent issues (e.g. data protection)

Our company has already introduced a number of compliance measures. But I’m not sure if that’s enough for a recognised compliance management system or if we might have to make improvements.

We offer:

  • Comprehensive gap analysis
  • Advice and support in the practical implementation of an individual set of measures based on recognised CMS standards (including IDW PS 980 and ISO 19600), legal literature and current case law, particularly in the following areas:
Compliance Culture, Goals and Communication

  • Consulting on the development and implementation of a compliance culture as well as concrete compliance goals based on the corporate culture and taking into account other corporate goals
  • Consulting and support of executives for “tone from the top” and “tone from the middle”

Our company already has an established and functioning CMS. However, I need specific legal advice, practical expertise or selective support in the further development of our CMS.

We offer:

  • Individual legal advice / “second opinion”
  • Individual support for adaptation/improvement of individual CMS elements
  • Practical preparation for CMS examination or certification (Compliance “Health-Check”)
