Regulatory Compliance Management

Organisations of all sizes and sophistication face complex, often high-risk compliance challenges. These include: firstly, young companies with low risk profiles or fast-growing companies that want to get ahead of the risks and embed a compliance culture early; secondly, growing companies seeking to understand and mitigate changing risk profiles as they expand into new geographies or lines of business and implement an appropriately risk-based compliance programme as they prepare to go public; finally, large multinational corporates operating in high-risk regions around the world who want to stay ahead of the impact of business changes on risk, evaluate the effectiveness of their compliance programmes and get a step ahead of their peers. GRC LEGAL’s approach to regulatory compliance principles is as follows;

Designing and Refining Compliance Policies and Procedures

At GRC LEGAL, we help clients and advisors design new and enhance existing compliance policies, procedures and controls to address and mitigate risk on their behalf. Whilst we do not advocate an “out-of-the-box” approach, we believe that adequate and appropriate policies and procedures should be clear, practical and accessible, taking into account the company’s history, values and culture. At GRC LEGAL, we have helped clients and advisers in a wide range of industries develop the necessary compliance policies and procedures, have experienced many different approaches and believe we are in a position to help companies determine the best approach to a particular situation. This experience puts us in a position to help companies achieve their vision in a way that supports their business objectives while allowing them to advance their compliance goals by minimising existing risks.

Comparative Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Adaptation Programmes

At GRC LEGAL, we take a multi-faceted approach to benchmark compliance programmes against those of peers and the expectations of legislative regulators and enforcement agencies. Clients and clients benefit from these multifaceted perspectives and our team’s ability to anticipate and track the agendas and reactions of regulators and competent administrative authorities. Through these practices, we help companies decide how best to use their compliance resources and provide concrete guidance and recommendations to help companies develop their programmes to be consistent and in line with industry best practices and to meet the expectations of regulators and competent administrative authorities.

Daily Adaptation Programme Support Implementation and Counselling

At GRC LEGAL, we are dedicated to advising our clients and consultants on the day-to-day issues that arise in the implementation and execution of compliance programmes. In a typical day-to-day support, we develop a plan to mitigate the potential risk of the process, consult with the necessary partners and, where necessary, provide training to the board of directors on the company’s obligations in relation to the compliance programme. This way of working at GRC LEGAL allows us to provide proactive advice to our clients and consultants and help them achieve their business objectives in a way that reduces compliance risks.

Crisis Preparation and Crisis Management

As GRC LEGAL provides preventive consultancy services, we work on creative and practical solutions for all phases of crisis management, from preparation to response. We work closely with global incident response teams, senior leadership teams and boards of directors to design and manage in-house customised applications. We keep executives and boards on their toes with real-life scenarios to prepare them to deal with breaches, insider threats, active shooters, workplace harassment and other potential crises that modern organisations must be ready for. In addition, in the event of an emergency, we guide our clients through the many challenges that can arise, including proactive steps to mitigate potential risks and managing communications with internal and external stakeholders and regulatory and legal authorities.
