Corporate risk, governance and compliance

In the ever changing regulatory climate, legal and compliance teams must be constantly aware of new and changing laws, regulatory requirements and organisational risk. The aim must be to create a culture of proactive compliance and risk management but this is no simple task, particularly across multiple jurisdictions. 

The stakes are high, with financial and reputational consequences for organisations and individuals. However, with the right priorities and dedicated specialists, the complexity can be reduced and the risks to your business minimised. That’s where we come in.

Eversheds Sutherland Consulting can offer expert evaluation and advice on your risk, governance and compliance issues. In addition to providing you with a bespoke, prioritised action plan, our consultants can help you implement our recommendations, delivering lasting change and allowing you to take control of your risk and compliance activities. We also help clients with training and technology platforms to support their risk programmes.

Our team can help in the following areas: 

  • drafting policies, procedures and processes
  • health check to identify gaps 
  • development of a compliance risk register
  • corporate risk assessments and due diligence
  • legal risk and compliance technology solutions such as Microsoft SharePoint
  • learning modules and e-learning delivery
  • designing strategic global risk, regulation and compliance frameworks
  • developing cultures of ethics and compliance
  • multi-jurisdictional compliance 
  • global risk, regulation and compliance audits
  • global records management legislation and retention schedules for international organisations
  • corporate risk training

Eversheds Sutherland Consulting Financial Regulatory

Financial services regulation continues to present major compliance challenges and business opportunities. Regulators have become increasingly global in their approach to regulation and this, combined with a focus on ethics and ‘doing the right thing’, means the task of meeting regulatory expectations is increasingly complex.

Eversheds Sutherland’s Financial Services Regulatory Compliance team includes experienced industry professionals, who have significant front line experience across a range of business models together with considerable consulting experience.  

The team works seamlessly with our leading financial services lawyers offering you a multi-disciplinary and global service across the full range of sectors including asset and wealth management, retail and wholesale banking, insurance, consumer finance, corporate finance intermediation and broking and private equity.
