Governance Framework

Good governance is the foundation of prudent business management by a company. Strong governance arrangements provide effective oversight of the way in which a company operates its business and manages its risks.

As part of prudent business management, a company should seek to establish a strong corporate culture of ethical behavior and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

Assent Legal develops and assists companies to implement a risk-based governance framework, consisting of policies and procedures, which can only be effective if supported by an ethical corporate culture and shared values, and clear performance goals and measures.

Assent’s extensive GAP analysis process takes into account the complexity and scale of a company’s business and advises on an appropriate response to ensure long-term sustainability and compliance within the ambit of the law.
