With regulation, risk and board responsibilities for management of legal entities on the rise, a strong global subsidiary governance framework is critical to avoiding both financial and reputational damage.
While most multinational companies have been careful to comply with home-state legal entity governance and compliance requirements, many are still exposed to significant risk when it comes to internal controls related to their overseas subsidiaries. Constantly shifting regime of regulatory environments developments, local business customs and compliance requirements means you must be vigilant in managing your legal entity structures globally.
Yet managing these challenges on a global basis is complex, costly and time-consuming and, increasingly, needs to be done against a backdrop of strong cost pressures. With limited back-office and in-house resources, many multinationals are forced to rely on a patchwork of disparate service providers, and an inconsistent approach to governance and compliance across countries.
With a network of corporate secretaries, lawyers and governance specialists across over 100 jurisdictions, our Entity Governance & Compliance practice is ideally positioned to assist. Not only can we help you with your day-to-day legal entity management — domestically, regionally and internationally — we can also help you adopt a more strategic and consistent approach to global entity governance across your organisation.
