Governance, Risk Management & Compliance

The Miles & Stockbridge Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) Team works with clients to proactively prepare for and mitigate risks – before, during and after the crisis.

Crises are inevitable. We have been on the front lines and in the trenches on environmental contamination, product recalls, natural disasters, high profile incidents, and civil, criminal, and congressional investigations.

Based on our work, for many clients, from large to small, in many industries, we know how: to identify and manage risks; to respond to and mitigate the impact of a crisis; and to go beyond – to become proactive and to create processes that integrate compliance and risk management into corporate strategy to:

  • Increase operational efficiency and effectiveness;
  • Improve, and reduce risk, to brands;
  • Reduce personal exposure of senior management and Board Members; and
  • Enhance Company culture.


We bring to the process a diverse team. Our team includes former senior legal and business executives of major corporations, a former Executive Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, who was named one of the nation’s “50 Most Influential Minority Attorneys” by The National Law Journal, and lawyers with decades of experience counseling and litigating some of the largest, most complex and high profile civil and criminal matters.


We work with our clients, and subject matter experts, in a holistic, multidisciplinary approach, to develop and implement processes and approaches that “fit” and are flexible to address changing businesses and risk profiles. We are experienced “first responders,” as both counselors and litigators, but we go “beyond the fire alarm” to help our clients prepare for and mitigate the risks and impacts of events.
