In the beginning

When Damien McGovern, an Irish Barrister, was working with Deloitte in Brussels, he was overwhelmed by the amount of EU official journals being delivered daily to his desk.

Realizing that there must be another option, he conceived a more efficient way to assess the risks and opportunities in proposed legislation. Damien’s experience with legal, regulatory, and compliance issues, and an understanding of the problems for his customers of not having suitable tools for a difficult job, gave rise to our knowledge management platform, C2P and the establishment of Compliance & Risks in 2002.
