Our experience

What we’ve achieved

We were at the centre of the firm’s implementation of the new European data privacy regulations – GDPR. We rolled out GDPR toolkits in 35 countries and worked with local champions to assess the impact of the new rules on how we manage the data of our people and clients, manage our offices and initiate new projects. Over 170,000 letters were sent to clients. We reviewed 1,500 supplier terms and sent out new terms to over 700 of them. The virtual project team numbered over 120 people.

What we’ve achieved

In your first week of joining the firm we will provide support to help protect your reputation and that of the firm. This includes elearning modules covering topics such as anti-money laundering, anti-bribery and corruption, and information security.

What we’ve achieved
