Lawyers with expertise in Compliance and Criminal Liability of Legal Entities

Compliance is an English term that means regulatory compliance. It is a legal discipline that emerged in Spain when companies became criminally liable.

The Spanish Criminal Code provides for exemption from liability of the legal entity if at the time the crime was committed, the company had correctly implemented a compliance programme.

This has led to a higher number of entities integrating ethical and legal standards into their internal regulations, which are mandatory, to try to prevent the commission of crimes within the company or, if they are committed, to limit the entity’s criminal liability.

At Oliver & Abogados we have extensive experience in the development and implementation of regulatory compliance programmes aimed at preventing legal risks and providing security to businesses.
