About MB Risk Management LLC

Managing Risks for Corporations & Organizations

Setting High Standards

Leaders are the conscience of their organizations. They are responsible for maintaining a culture of accountability and setting high compliance and ethics standards despite the pressure for continuous financial growth and innovation.

The scope of criminal compliance and ethical risks is broad and can include questionable business practices such as:

  • Domestic and foreign bribery and kickback schemes.
  • Falsifying financial documents.
  • Using a competitor’s confidential information.
  • Doing business with questionable third parties.
  • Using funds from illicit sources.

The cost of failing to set high compliance and ethics standards is substantial and may result in criminal investigation and prosecution, financial penalties and fines, damage to reputation and loss of public trust.
