Due Diligence & Audit
Failure to comply with national and European laws, regulations and codes of practice that impose obligations on business can lead to a variety of sanctions. Failure to meet contractual obligations might result in even greater cost in indemnities or damages. Insurers are taking an increasing interest in their customers' approach to legal risk, and the developments in corporate governance encourage risk reduction. As a result, businesses increasingly turn to their lawyers for assistance in identifying risk and compliance failure by a review or 'audit' of their processes and contracts.
We can deploy lawyers who are experienced in this forensic process. Our legal audit service can be tailored to the needs of individual departments within the business, to the needs of the business as a whole, or to those of a group of companies.
