Competition authorities have extensive powers to investigate and punish companies found to have infringed competition law, including the ability to impose significant fines. Even if the allegations are unproven, they can severely harm a company’s reputation. Companies can effectively deal with competition law risks by putting compliance programmes in place to prevent and detect anticompetitive activity within their operations.
We advise clients in all areas of competition law compliance, particularly with the setup and implementation of internal compliance programmes. These programmes are tailored to address the specific needs of the client’s organisation and business sector. Our compliance services cover comprehensive monitoring and auditing of internal processes and the provision of support to improve compliance activities.
As part of an effective compliance programme, we provide bespoke training to employees, including virtual as well as on-site training, to enhance their knowledge and awareness of the company’s policies, rules and procedures in relation to competition compliance.
