Highly Regulated Industries

Costello Law Firm assists businesses in heavily regulated industries facing the crisis of litigation and enforcement actions and those who want to eliminate risk by preventing problems before they can occur. We audit and test the systems that are already in place and are ready to suggest and implement new systems if weaknesses and inefficiencies are found. Heavily Regulated Industries must be able to fix problems before they occur. Comply with industry standards requires that systems be put in place before there is a problem. Once problems are caught, new systems can be developed to make sure that compliance issues are effectively and easily managed in the future.

We advise clients in highly regulated industries and other businesses on compliance issues relating industry regulations. The best and obvious way to avoid a problem is to know, understand and follow the rules. All businesses owners and professionals are expected to know, understand and comply with all the legal and regulatory obligations of business, employment rules and the regulatory obligations of their industry. In fast paced world of business this is harder than it sounds. In highly regulated industries, it is especially difficult because the regulations and legal requirements are complex.

Businesses in highly regulated industry must also make sure their employees follow the rules.
We help our clients understand the rules and implement internal controls and systems to assure compliance, including internal controls to allow self-audit, compliance systems to check and monitor human error and training programs and management manuals on proper procedure.

Fast Growing Businesses

Costello Law Firm assists businesses who have grown too fast for their existing infrastructure and found themselves suddenly lacking adequate legal and operational systems to assure compliance and stability.

We understand that entrepreneurs, innovators and business owners are focused on launching the business and driving revenue, sometimes to the exclusion of putting proper emphasis on important legal and regulatory structures necessary to stay in compliance and to avoid risk and crisis. We help our client set up stable formation, corporate governance and human resource systems; and, administrative protocols and internal controls to assure legal and regulatory compliance.
