In addition to the provisions of the criminal code, companies are increasingly aware of the need to implement criminal compliance programmes, for reasons of good corporate governance and to avoid possible damage to their reputation that could result from a criminal conviction.
An effective compliance system in a company is essential to avoid criminal liability and penalties ranging from fines to dissolution of the legal entity.
The Criminal Compliance system enables the company to identify, assess and control potential criminal risks and take timely action to reduce them.
Who do we advise?
Our Corporate Compliance lawyers at AGM Abogados advise companies on the design and implementation of the necessary mechanisms to prevent potential legal risks and control corporate compliance.
What are our main Criminal Compliance services for companies?
Ethical or whistleblowing channel
The implementation of an ethical or whistleblowing channel is an essential element of a compliance management system to identify and correct a company’s shortcomings and, above all, to prevent and detect corporate fraud.
Criminal risk analysis
We analyse in detail the characteristics of each company and identify the activities in which illegal acts are most likely to be committed and on this basis we prepare a personalised criminal risk prevention plan.
The most common crimes that can be committed within an organisation are:
- Money laundering.
- Tax evasion.
- Corruption between individuals.
- Influence peddling.
- Criminal bankruptcy.
- Crimes against data security, social security, intellectual property, public finances, etc.
Crime prevention models
We create and implement Criminal Compliance programmes that are fully adapted to each type of company, always in full compliance with current legislation and applying the best practices in the field.
Internal control body (Compliance Officer)
The Compliance Officer is the person responsible for overseeing and managing all compliance issues within an organisation.
AGM provides ongoing advice to this internal control body of the company, specifically in the exercise of its functions of monitoring operations and compliance with the prevention plan.
We provide a corporate criminal defence service in proceedings that may be brought against legal entities. We also offer advice on the most sensitive aspects of preventing criminal risks.
