Compliance is the process of adhering to legal and other binding guidelines in business practice. In recent years the issue of compliance has become increasingly important for businesses due to liability risk. Compliance is relevant for businesses of any size, in particular for medium-sized businesses. The year 2014 was proclaimed the year of compliance for medium-sized companies.

A business will often violate regulations because it had not been sufficiently prepared for compliance with these or due to a lack of knowledge in this area. This raises a number of legal queries for businesses, which require quality advice.

Dr. Andreas Rühmkorf advises clients on legal queries of compliance. Due to his areas of expertise in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and English law, his counsel focuses on compliance with CSR guidelines (CSR compliance) and the UK Bribery Act. The Bribery Act is also of relevance to German businesses since the scope of its application is very wide. Corruption prevention has a key role to play here.
