Governance and Compliance

We understand that governance, risk management and compliance can be tricky business. For over 20 years our Governance and Compliance team have been helping Australian companies compete with confidence nationally and internationally by pioneering the integration of governance, compliance and legal risk management practice with solid legal advice. It's our proactive approach and innate sense of where it is prudent to dig deeper that have helped organisations avoid the significant cost of a regulatory breach or non-compliance, and to use their GRC initiatives to add value to their organisations.


Our experience advising a range of public and private sector clients, including those in retail, energy, transport, logistics, aviation, education, manufacturing, energy and resources, financial services and retail banking means we are able to identify where gaps in your business' compliance system exists more quickly, leaving you to focus on achieving your business goals. However, recognising that each business is unique, we offer a tailored approach where we consult exclusively with clients to pinpoint improvements to your legal risk management.

Keeping up with today's highly regulated environment can be a real challenge. Our partners and lawyers make it their business to be experts in regulatory law, including financial services regulation (FSR), anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing laws, anti-bribery and corruption (ABC), privacy, banking regulation and unfair contract terms so that we can help you do the intellectual grunt work when it comes to understanding the interplay of these regimes with how your business works and its overarching GRC frameworks.

We also work together with our wider Clayton Utz teams to deliver integrated legal and compliance solutions. In particular, we work closely with our Corporate Advisory team to guide you on organisational structures and incorporating GRC functions to support the effective management of corporate governance and Board reporting.
