Legislative Decree no. 231/01 introduced direct liability for corporate entities with respect to crimes committed by directors, executives and their subordinates.
We have developed significant experience in drawing up compliance programmes, in coordination with management, in order to prevent the potential criminal sanctions that can arise from applicable law.
These include criminal offences against Italy's public administration, criminal corporate offences and white collar crimes.
We also act as advisor to, or members of, the compliance body charged by law with monitoring that a firm's corporate compliance programme is correctly implemented.
We also regularly advise on:
- Privacy, data protection and data management issues
- Preparation of the Documento Programmatico sulla Sicurezza
- Corporate appointments to fulfil compliance roles
- Health and safety issues pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/08 and product liability
