Practical, straightforward guidance and implementation for regulated entities and those seeking registration.Contact Us →
Whether you’re an entrepreneur just getting started, General Counsel or Chief Compliance Officer at a growing company, or a Portfolio Manager who’s been at this for decades, our regulatory compliance services will give you peace of mind. Get practical, business-focused advice and implementation services from a team that’s been there, done that.
Too often, the “experts” have never actually worked in the industry. They have excellent theoretical knowledge but they don’t understand the true challenges of running an investment business. Or, you may have found that your work is not actually done by the experienced expert who brought you in as a client, but by a junior with little experience. You pay a lot but you don’t get clear, actionable answers and your issues drag on.
When you’re facing an audit, or are in the middle of a transaction or growth plan, you cannot afford to wait for answers. You need practical, business focused answers fast.
Expensive policies and procedures that just collect dust are of little use. You need a solution that’s catered to your business needs that goes beyond the jargon and theories to implementable ideas. Our team bridges the gap.
To a hammer, everything is a nail. Some practices are too narrow to handle the wider gamut of compliance needs. You need a solution that can zoom in to the details of your business cycle, as well as zoom out to the wider industry norms.
We’ve been in the trenches in real companies, ranging from shiny new fintech startups to Canada’s oldest and most well-established financial institutions. We are former Chief Compliance Officers and General Counsels, and we work with a wide network of independent consultants. We aren’t here to give theoretical advice, but real practical answers.
We believe technology can be a part of the solution in helping you move quickly, get compliant, and focus on your business. We can help you implement practical solutions.
We are leaders in this field. Our team leads the industry with their ideas, influence, and impact. We are up to date with the latest happening in the field and can see hurdles before they block you in the future.
Your genius zone is what you are really good at. Our genius zone is solving complex regulatory problems in practical, efficient ways. Your genius zone is probably building businesses or making money for your clients. So why are you spending your time on regulatory issues? Spend too much time outside of your genius zone and it starts to suffer. We can help get you back to doing what you do best.
We offer regulatory compliance peace-of-mind. We provide a full suite of compliance consulting services, from initial design and registration to ongoing maintenance, personnel solutions, and complex problem-solving.
Working closely with our legal counsel practice area, we are staffed by experienced professionals who have worked in the trenches in executive compliance and risk capacity at leading institutions, including regulated crypto, money services businesses, IIROC dealers, portfolio management and investment fund management.
We can handle all aspects of registration, including drafting and implementation of policies and procedures manuals, client disclosures, business planning, arrangement of Financial Institution Bonding, communications with regulators, and more.
On an ongoing basis Renno & Co provides regulatory updates, reviews of regulatory materials, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual reviews and reposing, regulatory audit support, registration, and more. We can also provide outsourced compliance officer support, mandatory training programs, and a full suite of AML and ATF support services.
We can be your trusted partner when you have a complex problem to solve. Ranging from regulatory enforcement, client complaints, internal investigations, and virtually anything else that could arise, we have the experience and expertise to bring any challenging situation to a satisfying outcome.

Right from the start, I knew that the Renno team had people who could think outside the box to help build our business. They consistently act like partners and team members, not as external professionals. I know they are invested in our success, and that gives me confidence. They have become some of my favourite people to work with!
What I care most about is getting practical business answers to my questions and challenges. Someone who can understand our business quickly, and work well with our way of doing business. The Renno & Co team is both practical and responsive. They understand my reality and know how to create value for my team.
Most business deals die because legal teams are not responsive enough, or they draw out a problem over a long period of time. The Renno team is not like this. They help us get things done, on time. They help us notice the blind spots, and don't get bogged down on the unimportant factors. This makes a big difference in our fast-moving industry.
The team at Renno is reliable, efficient and professional. We always feel like a priority when we work with Renno. The team always assesses every situation and presents us with multiple solutions and scenarios. There are very few quality Web3 firms that truly understand the market and our needs. Renno is a trusted partner with high knowledge in the space.
We reached out to 15 law firms before picking Renno & Co. With big law firms, people are unresponsive, you have to talk one thing to one guy, and another thing to another guy, and they don't talk internally. The Renno team gave us work with a personal touch. They understood what we did right away, because they are in this space. They focus on giving practical advice and solving problems before they appeared.
It's great to work with Renno for our North American work. As a law firm deeply entrenched in the same space as us, we are able to frequently collaborate on problems and opportunities in this space. I have been impressed with their quality of work and their responsiveness.
I wanted to work with a tech-driven law firm based on a strong relationship. The Renno team was open to doing it this way. Being able to scale up as we have grown up has been very valuable to us. Not a lot of law firms can scale up and continue being this responsive.
To build a business, you have to act fast. Other law firms I'd spoken with would take 2-3 days to get back to us. And I had no idea what I'd get billed. The Renno team was not like this. They know how to be responsive, give me practical answers, without me worrying about some large surprise bill! They've been instrumental in helping us get setup and grow.
Right from the start, the Renno team have acted as partners and friends to our business who give us timely and smart advice. Renno & Co is focused on growing alongside us. Working with this team is like a breath of fresh air because we know we can get reliable help when we need, how we need it.
