Compliance

Context:

The client is a leading multinational corporate group in the industrial sector, particularly in the development of projects and maintenance related to the energy sector. In this sense, the client maintains a presence in the Dominican Republic through multiple subsidiary and affiliated companies.

Alburquerque advised the client on the implementation of a compliance program for the prevention of criminal offences. To this end, the firm assisted the client in adapting its compliance program to national legislation, since it is a multinational; it was developed based on a foreign legal order. The work carried out by the Firm included advice, consulting, and adequacy of internal protocols, as well as the preparation of corporate documents where a head of the company’s corporate compliance program was appointed in the Dominican Republic.

Benefit:

As a result of this advice, the client has mitigated the possibility of being criminally responsible for criminal offences committed by his collaborators, and also established a program accordingly to its international policies and local jurisdiction.
