Legal Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance or “LGRC”, which refers to the set of processes, rules, tools and systems used by lawyers to adopt, implement and monitor an integrated approach to business problems. Regulatory frameworks are constantly evolving across sectors and around the world. As transparency rises in importance and the costs of non-compliance with laws and regulations increase, businesses everywhere strive to adapt to the growing pressure from regulatory bodies.
With our extensive knowledge of local regulations and our developing multijurisdictional capabilities, we are well-positioned to help clients deal effectively and creatively with regulatory and compliance issues in their respective projects. This means that we cater for advisories on the legal requirements of each project such as Environmental permits from NEMA, county licenses to National licenses. We also engage these offices in getting all the legal paperwork needed for a smooth execution of the project. If needed, we also follow up on the progress of each project, regularly reporting to our clients through our reporting standards. As business has globalized and cross-border transactions have become more complex, the ability to provide appropriate counsel across jurisdictions becomes all the more important.
Our clients come to us to understand their responsibilities, manage risk and lessen the impact of complex regulatory regimes on their transactions or day-to-day operations. Our strong relationships with members of oversight agencies give us the basis to counsel clients with a current and fully informed perspective. We commit our global resources to helping them meet regulatory requirements and keep their businesses running smoothly, no matter where they are based.
