Canadian businesses have a hard-earned reputation for being sound, well-managed and ethical.
However, in today’s environment, an increasing number of businesses are facing unappreciated and unexpected exposure to white collar criminal and regulatory liability. Any number of situations can bring these threats to light, whether uncovered by a third party audit, a disgruntled whistleblower, a major financial shock or an industrial accident. The costs, risks and reputational damage can have devastating consequences for corporations, management and shareholder value. It is essential that businesses understand the risks and consequences posed by potential white collar and regulatory charges, and are prepared to respond decisively when they arise.
