BAHR – lightening the compliance load
Compliance requirements can change rapidly. Recent years have seen some dramatic changes in rules affecting areas as varied as sanctions regimes, financial and environmental regulations, anti-money laundering, competition, privacy, human rights and white collar crime, among others.
In this environment, companies need dedicated compliance and risk management advisors working closely together with specialists from other areas of expertise as needed. At BAHR, our advice is based on practical experience and an understanding of clients’ businesses and risk profiles, coupled with expert legal knowledge – a combination trusted by leading companies to keep them compliant and help them avoid risks. We are for example:
- Acting as external counsel to leading private equity manager HitecVision on all compliance aspects of its business.
- Advising Norwegian and international clients in various sectors on crisis management, internal investigations and handling of whistleblowing matters.
- Supporting Norwegian and international clients in various sectors with establishing compliance programmes, with a particular focus on trade control and anti-corruption, including handling risk assessments and drafting policies and procedures.
BAHR can help you with risk assessments and audits, compliance reviews and developing robust compliance programs, policies and procedures. We advise on anti-bribery issues internationally, and guide clients through trade sanctions and export control challenges. We also advise on crisis management, handle internal investigations, defend companies in external investigations and enforcement actions, and support you in your communication with regulatory and criminal authorities. BAHR regularly conducts transaction-related due diligence, and provides training and assistance with day-to-day compliance queries.
