Risk, Regulation and Governance
Changes to the commercial, legal and societal landscape have meant that organisations are faced with increasingly complex and interconnected challenges, risks and opportunities. Many of those changes, in turn, have resulted in governments, shareholders, consumers, employees and other stakeholders placing a greater emphasis on concepts like governance, oversight, accountability, transparency, compliance and earning a “social license to operate”.
Since the end of the financial crisis, organisations have increasingly felt the impact of the legal and regulatory change that has swept across the globe. This has significant operational, financial and strategic implications for our clients and their stakeholders. We work with our clients to establish robust and adaptable governance, risk management and compliance solutions.
The role of the in house lawyer used to be advising on whether something was legal. Today they are expected to advise on whether something is right, and that requires engagement and a broadened perspective. We support organisations in making these decisions, taking into account the evolving international legal and commercial landscape.
Sustainability refers to an organisation’s delivery of long-term value in financial, social, environmental and ethical terms. These matters increasingly impact on corporate long-term viability and resilience. We help our clients ensure that sustainability is embedded into their strategy and operations.
