Wherever you operate in the world, our regulatory consulting experts arm you with the facts and insights to respond with confidence to regulatory scrutiny.

An ever-changing landscape of regulations has created a potential minefield for businesses, raising the risk of government investigations and enforcement action. This risk is far-reaching, given the wide and sometimes international remit of national laws, including US and UK legislation.

Regulatory investigations cause serious business disruption and consume significant management time and resources, often compounded by collateral damage to brand and reputation, and the material sanctions and fines that may result.

Helping you manage risk

Limiting regulatory risk requires a thorough, unbiased assessment of your organisation’s internal controls and compliance. Our regulatory compliance consultants help you determine exposure to enforcement action and identify measures to remediate deficiencies and mitigate future risks.

Wherever you operate around the world, HKA’s regulatory consulting services arms your enterprise with the facts and insights you need to respond confidently to local and international regulatory scrutiny of alleged bribery and corruption, money laundering, economic sanctions violations, and other matters.

HKA teams include specialists in forensic accounting, data analysis, financial investigation, money laundering, fraud and corruption, and cybersecurity.
