In today’s globalised business environment, companies face a complex assortment of new and often contradictory laws and regulations. High-profile corporate scandals involving compliance failures teach us that loss of reputation can have a significant, if not fatal, effect on a company. International companies recognise this and invest heavily in systems designed to detect and prevent compliance breaches. However, such systems and controls cannot succeed without the development of a strong compliance culture that secures buy-in from executives, managers, employees, contractors and business partners all at levels.

This title offers cutting edge know-how and guidance for the development and management of a sophisticated legal risk management and compliance operation. While identifying risks and regulatory challenges, chapters also explore how professionals can manage processes; implement change; track issues and loss events; screen potential clients, partners, employees and contractors; and implement appropriate remediation. The book features chapters on board structures, tax compliance, fraud and bribery, Sarbanes-Oxley requirements, European capital markets regulation, competition law, data protection, offshoring and the cloud, human resources issues for managers, and managing legal risk in China.

Legal Risk Management, Governance and Compliance is a must-have desk reference for in-house corporate counsel and compliance officers, individuals involved in the compliance, audit, legal and risk functions within companies and non-profit organisations, as well as the law firms that service these organisations’ needs.
