Your compliance is our concern

Compliance is vital for any business or financial institution. It essentially means complying with all applicable laws and regulations and internal policies.

For example, with regard to corporate governance, conflicts of interest, insider trading, fraud and corruption, international trade sanctions, client due diligence (know you customer), data protection and privacy, reporting obligations, licenses and permits, competition, health, safety, security & environment (HSSE), and human rights. Our goal is to help clients achieve their operational, financial and strategic ambitions by ensuring compliance with rules, and promoting a culture that embeds ethical behaviour and integrity into their business.

  • What we do

    Most companies have a tailor-made compliance programme in place. At NautaDutilh, we have many years of experience in working with clients to create, improve or review their compliance programmes.

    From the perspective of prevention, it is important to ensure that all employees at all levels are aware of the importance of compliance and are familiar with the internal measures and compliance procedures. Effective information provision via internal communication channels and workshops is essential. 

    We can help you assess the compliance risks that your company may face and with internal monitoring and, where necessary, reporting and handling of any irregularities (see below). We offer customised solutions to your company, such as:

    • Due diligence investigations, audits and monitoring
    • Codes of conduct, policy measures, notifications, questionnaires and clauses
    • Company-specific compliance courses.

    It is important to take appropriate remedial action to address any compliance issues and minimise their negative impact. In addition, effective support should be available in the event of any legal or other proceedings in the courts or before an administrative body. For many companies, it is of added value to entrust remedial actions and legal handling with a single legal adviser so that a full-service solution can be provided confidentially, quickly, and efficiently. Our experts can combine both aspects in order to arrive at an integrated approach. 

    Our Compliance team can assist you with internal investigations, corrective actions, reviewing policies and procedures. The team can also assist you with civil, criminal or administrative proceedings.
