Compliance

  • Sapin Act II:  new obligations applicable immediately,
  • A team of multi-disciplinary lawyers dedicated to compliance,
  • Tailored processes for the compliance of mid-caps.

The new compliance obligations resulting notably from the Sapin Act II and the European GDPR regulation undeniably constitute additional constraints for companies.  2018 represents an important step.
Taking these new regulatory requirements into account requires implementing a complete, coordinated compliance program. 

Companies, regardless of their size, are now required to implement procedures that guarantee compliance with statutory provisions and prevent the risk of violations.  This now involves all of a company’s business sectors and operations:

  • Employment law and human resources,
  • Competition and commercial relationships,
  • Relationships with public authorities,
  • New technologies/personal data.
