Nowadays, more and more companies want to demonstrate their commitment to society and thus mitigate possible criminal or sanctioning risks. To this end, they have adopted prevention systems that enable them to meet the expectations that society places on them.

At Mateos Legal we believe that it is better to prevent risks than to have to solve them. Therefore, we accompany you in the detection and prevention of any situation that may endanger your company and its reputation, avoiding serious legal consequences, such as fines, disqualifications, or even criminal liability.

Following the reform of the Criminal Code in 2010 through the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, which established a category of corporate criminal risk, companies, regardless of their size, were obliged to implement crime prevention programs with the aim of detecting and preventing criminal risks that the company or its employees may commit. 

Compliance is the set of rules, procedures, and best practices that companies must implement to prevent criminal conduct within their organization.

Mateos Legal works closely with our customers to get to know it in depth to design a compliance plan tailored to their company:

  • Risk analysis: we identify and evaluate the possible criminal scenarios any company may face: fraud, corruption, money laundering, tax crimes, etc.
  • Design and implementation of the compliance plan: we develop a code of ethics tailored to every organization and a regulatory compliance manual, establishing the internal control and supervision mechanisms, defining the protocols for action in the event of possible incidents, etc.
  • Training: we provide courses to your managers, employees, and collaborators of your company to make them aware of the importance of regulatory compliance and the consequences of non-compliance.
  • Auditing and monitoring: we carry out periodic reviews of the compliance plan to verify its effectiveness, detect possible deficiencies or deviations and propose the appropriate corrective measures.
