TozziniFreire is one of the pioneers in Compliance & Investigation, establishing a dedicated practice area in 2006. Our team is composed of professionals recognized in the market (all are CCEP and CCEP-I certified) and who directly interact with government authorities and follow worldwide trends in the field by participating in and promoting important national and international forums focused on compliance. The practitioners at TozziniFreire are dedicated to not only assisting companies in the creation of structures and controls for prevention, detection and response, and in complying with legal and regulatory demands and corporate principles, but also to educating our clients about the best practices of each industry.
As part of a full-service firm with a multidisciplinary culture, the Compliance & Investigation practice group is in constant dialogue with TozziniFreire’s other divisions, so that professionals of several specialties are familiarized with compliance matters and thus play a complementary role in elaborating prevention measures for defense strategies. In order to better serve our clients and considering the multijurisdictional nature of compliance issues, the team works in close interaction with areas such as Labor, Tax, Antitrust, Public Law, Banking & Finance, M&A, Litigation, and White-Collar, among others, as well as with a network of first-tier and highly recognized firms in all continents.
