We provide a wide range of compliance and anti-corruption services, including conducting compliance reviews and internal investigations, representing companies and their management in relation to criminal and government investigations (including tax matters), implementing and advising on data protection issues as well as reviewing, developing and training for anti-corruption compliance programs.
We are the only law firm in Romania or Moldova to have two partners that are Certified Compliance and Ethics Professionals (CCEP-I).
Furthermore, the law firm was recently recognized in the Legal 500 for our White Collar Criminal Defense practice, stating that we are “particularly good at seeing the larger picture and understanding the commercial issues” as well as “getting things done.”
In this increasingly complex and regulated global business environment, multinational companies and businesses must take great care when balancing business growth and investment with the myriad of applicable legal requirements and rules. Our goal is to advise clients on how best to mitigate risk and conduct business ethically, without sacrificing profitability.
In addition to general compliance matters (internal rules and regulations, conflict of interest policies and so on), we have also worked on numerous fraud and employee malfeasance cases, including investigations of possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and matters before the Romanian anti-corruption authority (the DNA) and the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime & Terrorism (DIICOT). We have regularly advised companies and investors on corporate best practices and the “do’s and don’ts” of good corporate governance and behavior.
However, sometimes circumstances require professional and responsive representation before prosecutors and criminal courts. Having expert investigative and white collar counsel at hand who can quickly, skillfully and pro-actively address any matters that arise, is a key component to successful outcomes. We provide that service and have the ability to act immediately to any crisis. Importantly, our team includes several veteran criminal defense attorneys with over 30 years of combined experience, acting as “Of Counsel” to the firm.
