Inside Perspective, Global Reach
Today’s global market presents valuable opportunities — as well as compliance challenges that span multiple countries. Having a multijurisdictional approach to compliance is essential. 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 local lawyers, based in nine offices throughout North America, work seamlessly with our Global Compliance team to provide the highest caliber of service, both in this region and across borders.
We act as your advocate during investigations, and guide you 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. Drawing on 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.
