Entity Governance & Compliance Service

Your expert for questions

Start your digital transformation with us as a corporate governance service provider

In the medium- and long-term, digitization will change companies and their business models, in some cases fundamentally. At the same time, companies already face unforeseen challenges due to global crises, only tackled by an ever decreasing amount of skilled workers. Both long-term developments and ad-hoc crisis situations have an impact on the organization and governance of companies, especially in an international context.

As a corporate governance service provider, PwC Legal supports clients not only in complying with the requirements for their global corporate structures, including in times of crisis, but also in setting them up today for a digitally-enabled future in a process-oriented manner.

Our Global Entity Governance & Compliance (EGC) team offers tailored solutions for this purpose. As an Alternative Legal Service Provider, we combine legal expertise with business process know-how and state-of-the-art technology for a holistic and global managed service approach.

The need for specialized legal advice is increasing

The consequences of pandemics, inflation, populism, protectionism, new working models and, last but not least, the debate and legislation on sustainability – are all factors that make economic forecasts more difficult and which are driving change in markets in general and change in individual business processes in particular. This directly affects our clients’ corporate governance and compliance profiles. The global management and internal control of group company structures already entailed certain risks in the past. Now the demands on companies and their managing directors have increased once again, not least in view of the digital transformation.

In addition, internal resources are generally limited and often lack the necessary knowledge and skills for digital transformation resulting in a fragmented landscape of technology and service providers. This increases the need for specialized and alternative legal advice from a single source.

More than just consulting

PwC Legal offers its clients the competencies required for such a transformation: in-depth specialist know-how of a future-oriented entity governance and compliance service with proven process expertise and intuitive as well as scalable technology solutions… and all this from a single source – worldwide!

Through cutting-edge technology, our governance services enable customers to have the effectiveness and flexibility they need to succeed in their markets on a global basis.
