Approach

A holistic, client-centred approach


We understand that one of the greatest challenges facing our clients is the constantly evolving array of regulatory risks that they face, in areas as disparate as anti-bribery and corruption, antitrust and competition, data privacy, export controls and sanctions, financial services regulation, global mobility, customs and tax. Reflecting the breadth and increasingly interconnected nature of those risks, Mayer Brown’s Risk Management practice offers a holistic and client-centred approach encompassing an extensive range of complementary services designed to help our clients to identify, manage and respond to the different risks that they face.


We recognise that, in many sectors, certain types of conduct can constitute a chronic problem with a tendency to recur. We appreciate the challenges faced by boards and why it is frequently insufficient to be merely reactive. In certain instances and jurisdictions, the standard practice of regulatory authorities is to require a risk assessment. Our approach relies upon global best practice, informed by the experience of our lawyers serving in a range of enforcement agencies, acting as monitors for governmental authorities, and representing a wide range of private and public sector organisations. That experience informs us as to how enforcers will react and where the legal and regulatory boundaries lie in areas where the position may not be clear.

We pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ businesses and listening to their concerns. Many of our lawyers have worked in-house, and we understand the priorities and concerns of in-house legal advisers. We work sensitively with our clients’ internal legal and compliance teams, as well as with other external advisers, but our advice will always be rigorous, independent and objective.
