Within Compliance & Regulatory we provide companies and organisations with advice on and interpretation of Swedish rules based on EU law, rules which often include prohibitions and sanctions. We also perform internal company investigations in case of suspected infringements. Our services include:
- Counteracting corruption
- Counteracting money laundering
- Review of Swedish legislation from an EU law perspective
- Internal investigations of companies
Corruption is a serious problem as it contributes to poverty and inequality, damages democratic institutions, deters from investments and distorts competition. Consequently, the legislation is continuously sharpened. We assist our clients in interpreting the corruption legislation and its requirements for companies. We also provide services to implement routines and associated training to ensure that the company does not violate legislation or best practice recommendations.
The rules on money laundering and the financing of terrorism today affect more companies than just banks and financial institutions. We provide our clients with services to interpret the money laundering legislation and its requirements for companies. We also provide services to implement routines and associated training to ensure that the company does not violate legislation or best practice recommendations.
Review of Swedish legislation from an EU law perspective:
The increased number of litigations under competition and public procurement law and the questioning of several governmental monopolies under general rules in EU law shows the increased importance of EU law in Sweden. Our services include interpretation and application of rules and principles in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union as well as in specific detailed regulations and directives.
Internal investigations of companies:
We provide internal investigations of suspected misconduct within companies on behalf of owners, board of directors or management. Our internal investigations are led by an experienced investigator supported by a small team of legal experts depending on the relevant areas of law. If necessary, we use external expertise for financial analysis, IT forensics or other needed industry knowledge.
Our internal investigations are protected by legal privilege and are therefore protected from insight from others than the client.
