Business entities are compelled to hire independent compliance consultants under a variety of scenarios. Companies facing possible indictment or other business-threatening outcomes may proactively hire an independent expert to review their operations to ensure that the problems that brought the company to the attention of the authorities are eliminated and prevented in the future. In some industries, regulatory requirements dictate the appointment of an independent expert under certain circumstances. Or, companies wanting to instill protocols and positive attitudes toward compliance and ethics and improve relationships with constituents may voluntarily engage the services of a compliance expert to review existing procedures and achieve best practices.
