Inside perspective, global reach
In today’s global market, having a multijurisdictional approach to compliance is essential. Compliance problems are rarely confined to one country or one issue. When the government arrives at your door, you need a law firm that can quickly coordinate cross-border internal investigations to determine the scope of the problem and mobilize to protect you. With longstanding offices in key financial centers and emerging markets, Baker & McKenzie lawyers are already on the ground, ready to tackle high-stakes investigations from all legal angles.
Our Global Compliance & Investigations Practice is filled with high-ranking former prosecutors who have earned the trust of local enforcement authorities — trust that can make all the difference in limiting the scope of investigations and minimizing damages. Our experience extends beyond local laws and business practices to working together from all corners of the globe to provide clear direction and real-time answers for clients.
We not only act as your advocate during investigations, but serve as your guide in establishing corporate compliance programs that address your greatest compliance risks and mitigate problems before the government shows up. We start by providing you with a big picture view of your compliance obligations, from data privacy and supplier agreements to internal controls and labor relations. Using our inside knowledge of which compliance violations the government tends to enforce, we help you prioritize areas of vulnerability and drill down on those issues first — using your resources most effectively to minimize risk.
