Business Integrity – Compliance

Our goal related to business integrity is the application of our juridic expertise to prevent legal or regulatory risks that may threaten a company susteinability due to risk/ decisions or excessively agressive actions of it’s team.

We see business sustainability as a tripod, formed by a transparent governance focused to protect shareholders and investors interest, effective risk management and na effective integrity program.

More than to please regulators, the integrity program prevents value and patrimony destruction by fraud or irresponsible behavior.

The business integrity program protects employees and investors, but also protects the society. The benefits of an effective integrity program ranges from the economic activity protection to preventing the public interest harm by the corruption itself.

Several countries and international organizations are look beyond criminalization and civil liability by fraud and corruption and has issued rules which forces and/or stimulates companies to implement internal prevention processes, and forcing them to keep in track (monitor), their supply chain.

                                                                                                                     An effective implementation of the business integrity program comes from a solid decision from the “highest” management. A “tone from the top” strong to change or enhance it’s business culture. C-level and investors direction must garantee the coherence when this implementaion demands changes to the company’s atitude in it’s comercial (trade) relations.

The earning from this effort towards laws and regulation is the compliance with standards of national and international anti-corruptional laws and prevention of legal and regulatory risks from the most diverse natures.

After the eliminations of behaviours compliant with the company’s values, starts the activities of awareness and education for the employees and retailers network that will keep being supported by “help desk” services, behavior ratings and reports, and if necessary corrective actions.

The integrated work of our teams at Correia da Silva Advogados, associated with an experience in supporting diversified businesses compliance form from Project design to it’s implementation, allow us to offer a full range of services in this field.
