PRACTICES

Compliance

Accompanying the growing needs of our clients to address local and cross-border compliance and anti-corruption matters, locally and internationally, our firm was a pioneer offering compliance services among the full-service law firms in Argentina.  We were also the first full-service firm to develop a white collar & corporate crime department, making our Compliance Department the most comprehensive in the market with vast experience in internal investigations and criminal proceedings.

We offer guidance on business integrity and ethics; anti-money laundering and the financing of terrorism; risk analysis and design, development and implementation of anti-corruption and anti-fraud codes of conduct, policies and procedures; internal investigations and asset tracing and recovery.  We also advise on the impact of integrity programs in determining criminal liability for a company, its shareholders and directors, particularly under the new Corporate Criminal Liability Law.

We have worked with the best law firms in the United States, Brazil and other countries in complex cross-border investigations, both internally and with the intervention of foreign authorities (DoJ, SEC, etc.).

We are the first and only leading law firm in Argentina to join the United Nations Global Compact, and we are members of the B20 Task Force on Integrity and Compliance.

Members of our Compliance team have been recognized by Chambers Global and Chambers Latin America, The Legal 500, Latin Lawyer 250, LACCA Approved and Who’s Who Legal, among others. Beccar Varela is the only law firm in Argentina included in “The GIR 100”, a ranking elaborated by Global Investigations Review that selects the 100 best firms in the world in this field.
