Risk consulting

The global risk landscape is changing. Regulatory change is in a state of flux, technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate and the economic outlook is increasingly volatile. In this new era, businesses must decide whether they will continue with business as usual, or instead rethink their approach to risk management.

Our risk consulting practice is committed to helping our clients evolve their business models and thrive within an increasingly complex environment. The team advises clients across the full spectrum of compliance, governance, and risk management matters, working in partnership with the firm’s lawyers to deliver holistic, comprehensive and business-focused advice.

The practice is a key component of our wider risk advisory offering, which provides proactive, integrated and global advice in relation to the new and quickly evolving risk landscape clients are facing. Comprised of experienced individuals who have held senior positions within global financial institutions and consultancies, as well as former regulators, our team focuses on helping risk and compliance functions discharge their responsibilities, delivering independent assurance, assessment and remediation services, and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of control environments and governance frameworks.
