Entity Governance & Compliance

With regulation, risk and legal entity management gaining increasing prominence board responsibilities have never been broader or greater.

While most multinational companies have been careful to comply with parent company compliance and governance requirements, many are still exposed to significant risk when it comes to internal controls over their overseas subsidiaries. A constantly shifting regime of regulatory developments, local business customs and compliance requirements mean you must be vigilant in managing your legal entity structures globally.

We are part of a network of 500+ company secretaries, lawyers and governance specialists across over 100 jurisdictions. We are ideally positioned to assist you in areas such as:

  • Governance protocols
  • Board governance
  • Board responsibility
  • Regulatory governance
