Risk Management & Compliance

When My-Hué Tan joined MANGEAT in 2020, our firm already had several well-established practices with seasoned partners and associates. She quickly identified synergy opportunities of complementing the existing strong practice of Financial Crime and Investigations led by Grégoire Mangeat with a risk management and compliance practice.

This new practice is leveraging on her multinational and operational experience at companies:

“I advise clients how to proactively and adequately plan and mitigate diverse types of risk whether they are industrial, ethical, labour relations or corporate governance related to name a few. Handling cross-functional or multi-jurisdictional projects, including post-acquisition integrations, is one of my favourites.”

General Counsel Desk

With the General Counsel Desk, we created a unique hybrid advisory practice. We can step in for family businesses or other small businesses, which do not have a general counsel or a legal department to bridge a temporary lack of resources or a needed competency for a high profile project.

The General Counsel Desk also advises on the “People” side for example by mapping out the legal competencies, creating or redesigning a legal department.

“Sometimes sole practitioners, who are general counsels in a company, do not have the managerial experience, or do not know how to set up and lead a legal department. My previous legal leadership roles enable me to share tangible experience. I counsel our clients on legal department management, legal operations and accompany them in considering attracting, motivating, developing and retaining their talents.”
