Why it Matters

Compliance / Regulatory special projects.

Special projects can present special challenges.

One of our professionals assisted a public company in engineering services with a series of multi-province compliance issues.

The client’s plan was to deal with all the provincial jurisdictions simultaneously through multiple external law firms, an approach potentially fraught with high costs and management headaches.

As we always do, our professionals began with an assessment that closely involved the client’s business team. Based on the initial review, we clearly defined the overall problem and put forward a refined plan based on carefully sequencing each compliance matter rather than trying to deal with it all at once.

Based on this plan, the client saved significant management time, improved internal business analysis and gained better quality legal advice. External counsel costs also were cut in half from the original fees quoted by the external law firms.
