Corporate Compliance

Organic Law 5/2010 of June 22, introduced in Spain the direct criminal responsibility of legal persons, for criminal actions committed by their legal representatives and administrators acting on their behalf, or by workers in the performance of their work activity. These assumptions occur due to an absence of preventive protocols and / or a lack of control in their implementation and enforcement.

In this new legal framework, companies, of any dimension, are forced to implement effective prevention protocols, in order to control the risks of their organization and avoid the commission of crimes. The absence of these tools can lead to criminal behavior within it, and with it economic sanctions that can end many years of work and business growth.

Within this legal framework, Andreu & Alenda Abogados provides highly specialized comprehensive advice, so that our clients comply with the legal precepts in their different areas:
