Barcelona/Boston, November 29, 2021.- RocaJunyent (RJ) one of Spain’s leading business law firms has entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with Affiliated Monitors, Inc. (AMI) the USA’s premier independent compliance monitoring/evaluation company.
Based on the complementary experience of RocaJunyent in working with businesses in Spain and outside of the country, and AMI’s deep international experience in working with a company’s compliance program and ethical culture, we know that by taking a pro-active approach to developing, implementing, training and supervising compliance programs in all business sectors, effective compliance programs become an important part of corporate governance. Having a program that meets regulatory and best practice standards should be a recognized asset of any company.
Within the growing interest in the early adoption of regulatory compliance manuals in all types of organizations – following the repeated notices that come to us from the Second Chamber of the Spanish Supreme Court – the RJ and AMI alliance brings the expertise of AMI, a company that has vast experience and a proven methodology in the provision of these services, thanks to the knowledge acquired in its almost twenty years in the North American, Spanish, and international markets in performing these types of evaluations.
Working with trusted experts takes compliance to the next level, based on integrity and independence in the examination and evaluation of compliance programs which look at a variety of corporate governance, controls and processes, to strengthen the ethical culture and regulatory compliance in companies. RJ and AMI are excited to offer our services to companies in Spain, Portugal and throughout Europe.
