Legislative/Regulatory Compliance

Companies and organizations look not only internally but also externally for expert advice and council in developing policies, practices and procedures for administering and adhering to such actions. A critical but key component to the overall process is a periodic review of such policies, practices and procedures, which some companies perform internally while other look externally for such services.
