The public prosecutor is at the front door with a search warrant. A television crew is shooting outside the corporate headquarters. The communication department of your company is constantly bombarded with new questions by the media. In the event of compliance crises, the company is faced with serious damage, not only through investigations by the public prosecutor’s office, BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority) or SEC, but also and particularly through reporting by the media. We are familiar with this situation and have been advising our clients in all large compliance crises in recent years. Our practical experience helps us to advise our clients optimally in these situations and to react with the necessary speed.
In such situations – depending on each case – close co-operation between the legal department, compliance, communication, auditing and the executive board may be necessary. The company needs a solution strategy, a unified front and a convention of speech. We know what is important and are able to effectively implement this in co-operation with our clients‘ decision makers.
