Due to anxiety surrounding potential conflicts of interest, large accounting firms are preparing to separate their audit and non-audit practices, and spin off their restructuring businesses. As with any restructuring transaction, it will be critical for these firms to identify and track the complex and evolving relationships with other parties involved. To meet this significant productivity challenge, firms require purpose-built conflicts management solutions they can effectively and consistently leverage to manage risk and remain compliant without reducing productivity or returns.

Today, many firms involved in debt restructuring, business recovery planning, and bankruptcy consulting often conduct manual checks across hundreds of entities, sourced from various systems both within the firm and external sources. To reduce this significant burden, leading professional services firms worldwide have turned to OnePlace Risk & Compliance, an Intapp suite.
