The main objectives of a compliance programme are, on the one hand, preventing risks in the event of violation of the rules on competition and, on the other hand, detecting and quickly correcting this type of situation.
Implementing a compliance programme is part of an ethical and value-building approach that enables companies to understand and anticipate their legal environment and to expand their business with confidence, by:
- Minimising their collective and individual risks
- Strengthening their corporate image as regards clients, trade partners, employees, as well as investors, media, rating agencies and public authorities
- Increasing the respectability of their brands.
Gide assists businesses in drafting and implementing compliance programmes that are suited to their specific needs (risk areas, sector of activity, structure of the company, national or international dimension, locations throughout the world).
Drawing on their experience acquired in a variety of sectors and jurisdictions, our teams work hand-in-hand with our clients to offer concrete and appropriate measures, such as competition audits (contracts, structural links, commercial practices…), training sessions (seminars or online coaching), implementing alert procedures and control audits.
The firm also offers its clients programmes that monitor their sales policy abroad in a bid to anticipate obstacles on the target market and limit their number and effect.
