Compliance Group

  

Brazil has occupied a prominent role in the global economic scenario and, as a result, we have observed and recommended to our clients to seek for alignment with the new safety rules and regulations, both domestically and abroad. Compliance area deserves highlights, due to its increasing importance as a tool for decision making processes and mitigation of risks and penalties.
 
In line with our client's needs, Demarest has expertise in developing Compliance Policies customized to each specific sector of business activities and respective complexities. Recent legislation has brought legal text recommendations to encourage internal preventive policies, such as the new Money Laundering Act (Law 9.613/1998, amended by Law 12.683/2012) and, more recently, the Anticorruption Law (Law 12.846/2013) which provides for civil and administrative liability of legal entities for acts harmful to the public administration.

Therefore, Demarest has a multidisciplinary team of professionals, able to identify applicable rules and regulations in order to develop corporate governance mechanisms, focusing on prevention and correction of practices likely to cause financial losses to the company and liability of its managers. 
 
• Among the main activities developed by Demarest Compliance Group we emphasize:
Assessment of succession liabilities for actions harmful to public administration in legal due diligences;
 
• Due diligences prior - and aiming - the implementation of Compliance Policies, focused on verifying conformity of business practices to current legislation, direct interactions of its partners, contracted or outsourced parties with public agents, and a final report with recommendations for remediation or correction of hazards identified;
 
• Implementation or revision of existing Compliance Policies, involving the drafting of company's internal policy and codes of ethics and conduct, anticorruption rules and procedures, periodic training both in presence and online, creation of a reporting channel, institutionalization of control mechanisms; and
 
• Assistance to clients on administrative, civil and criminal investigations or processes, before public bodies, including the assistance in leniency agreements, plea bargaining, adjustment of conduct terms, among others legal institutes.
