We advise companies on how to comply with legal requirements, good business practices, and ethical standards. To achieve good business practices, we help companies create processes to monitor their compliance with the laws and their established Codes of Conduct and policies – to create a culture of compliance. Our corporate compliance services include:

Creating Programs

The development of efficient methods to assist employers in establishing programs that complement the employer’s strategic objectives with initiatives that add value, reduce risk, and promote a culture of compliance throughout the organization. We are Certified Ethics, and Compliance Professional are Certified in Healthcare Compliance.

Analyzing Risk

Effective compliance begins with a realistic risk assessment that identifies potential vulnerabilities.   Proficient risk analysis requires experienced legal counsel with a keen focus on the organization’s key business activities and vigorously investigating and bringing action against individuals and entities for conduct that could be prevented with close adherence to properly drafted and implemented prevention policies. 

Our attorneys work with employers to help them find a framework best suited to their core operations, style, and culture. Once an employer selects a framework, our attorneys will facilitate a top-down or bottom-up confidential and privileged risk assessment and then help implement an ongoing process that is connected to the employer’s overall strategy, employee performance management system, and reporting requirements.

Program Evaluation and Assessment

Employers should periodically assess their programs’ effectiveness against the changing risks and goals of their organization, given the shifting regulatory landscape. The impetus behind an effective compliance program is the organization’s culture and the daily demonstration of ethical behavior within the organization from the top-down. Whether the employer needs to analyze the program against the United States’ Federal Sentencing Guidelines, confirm that employees are willing to speak up about violations, tailor its training to known compliance risks, or evaluate its investigation procedures, we have the skills and insights to help employers of all sizes evaluate and assess their compliance and ethics programs.

Policy and Procedure Development

Effective policy development is not a simple “check-the-box” exercise. Organizations are driven by their strategic objectives, and their policies should be tailored to fit their needs. When an employer requests that we draft or revise a code of conduct or any other type of policy or procedure, we will do so in a way that complements that particular employer’s values, principles, and strategies and matches the culture and communication style of its workplace.

To further enhance an employer’s overall compliance strategy, we are dedicated to developing innovative training programs and workshops. These programs include code of conduct training for all employees, executive sessions on how to promote ethical cultures in the workplace. Our training is engaging, thought-provoking scenario-based, interactive programs designed to meet multiple learning styles, and in which participants practice real skills and are presented with current ethics, compliance, and employment imperatives.

Investigations

For a compliance program to be effective, employees must have the ability to report misconduct without fear of reprisal or retaliation. When employees do report such activity, employers cannot be caught off guard; they must have in place an effective system to track, expertly investigate, resolve, and remedy noncompliance. Our attorneys regularly evaluate investigation programs and design and implement investigation systems, guidelines, and procedures that are woven into the compliance program and sensible for the organization. Our investigation team can: advise employers about high-profile investigations, train the employer’s investigative personnel, and step in to support, oversee, or conduct investigations on a broad range of code of conduct issues.
