All entities, regardless if "for profit" or "non-profit" that perform a service, including free services, are subject to some regulatory environment. Most companies are unaware of this and struggle to find what is right for their situation while still focusing on profit. Other companies focus only on profit and end up finding themselves in a regulatory nightmare and possible legal or financial sanctions.
These legal or financial sanctions can devasatate companies that don't take this seriously and have, more than once, put a company out of business. Other companies are a little better off and only take a huge financial penalty in fines as well as lost customer business due lack of customer faith. It's unfortunate and quite a few companies are intentionally gambling on their future with this uncertain potential for sanctions.
Arrakis is routinely called in to support companies in deep need of expertise to reduce the potential of this risk however this is almost always after the fact and quite often when the client is on the brink of a possible investigation or audit. Additionally, Arrakis is called in because one of the companies clients has detected, or suspects, an environment that is not quite the same environment the company has advertised to the client. Ultimately, the client has to determine if the company is a safe best to do business with and Arrakis generally helps the company keep that client.
However, consider this, wouldn't it be more beneficial to the company if the company understood their regulatory environment better? Wouldn't it make better sense to have a consultant support your internal efforts where you are less reliant on the consultant as opposed to more as well as be better prepared to support that regulatory environment after the consultant departs the project?
