Corporate compliance should be at the forefront of your organization’s priorities, as noncompliance can lead to costly penalties and liability. However, compliance also involves a tangled web of local, state, and federal laws and regulations, as well as making sure you are aware of what is happening at every level of your company’s operations.
Ensuring compliance can be an overwhelming undertaking, especially for new company owners, though it is possible with the help of the right business lawyer in San Francisco. We can help in many ways, including the following.
Identifying compliance issues – Often, simply knowing which regulations apply to your business can be challenging. There are laws regarding health and safety, zoning, licensing and permits, employment and labor, business activities and finances, and much more. We can review your operations and identify all relevant areas of compliance that need to be addressed.
Developing compliant policies – Your company should have strict and clear policies in place that promote compliance at every level. We can help to develop and draft such policies tailored to your business.
Risk management and independent audits – Often, owners are swamped with their everyday tasks, and they might not know what is happening throughout their corporation. We can assess risks of noncompliance and help facilitate audits to identify any potential issues.
Addressing allegations of noncompliance – If authorities, employees, or other parties allege violations of the law, we can guide you through the process of responding to these allegations and preventing penalties whenever possible.
