Corporate Compliance and Risk Management

ComplianceWe help our clients navigate state and federal laws and regulations, identify and assess their responsibilities, and assist them with appropriate tools to ensure compliance. We always account for the particular resource, structural, and market limitations of our clients and work to develop solutions that fit our clients’ current circumstances and are also scalable and adaptable as those circumstances change.Our projects often fit in one or more of these categories:

  • Analysis of actual or potential compliance responsibilities and risks and development of policies, procedures, and organizational changes that will address those responsibilities and risks
  • External compliance examinations and audits
  • Gap analyses to identify areas where improvement or additional effort is needed
  • Responses to criticism or encouragement from regulators, other governmental agencies, or external or internal auditors
  • Training modules, customized education solutions, and development and implementation of policies and procedures
