Compliance and Internal Control

In recent years, the concept of compliance has broadened to include corporate and social ethics as well as legal compliance. In addition, corporate scandals themselves are compliance breaches. In particular, those involved in illegality risk not only arrest and prosecution, corporate penalties, and administrative sanctions, but also serious lawsuits from business partners, consumers, and shareholders, and reputational harm. The survival of the company itself will be put at risk.

City-Yuwa advises on the application and interpretation of laws and regulations, building an internal system for legal compliance, and internal and external communication (related authorities, mass media, etc.) when laws and regulations are violated and will respond to the diverse needs of our clients.
