The risks associated with bribery and corruption incidents have dramatically increased in recent years.
'Long-arm' laws like the UK Bribery Act and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act are being aggressively enforced, a plethora of domestic legislation has emerged, and scrutiny from regulators and law enforcement agencies across the world is at an all-time high.
All this means that companies must be able to prevent, identify and respond to bribery and corruption incidents effectively, wherever in the world they do business.
Our world class corporate crime and investigations team spans over 25 offices around the world, specialising in global anti-bribery and corruption compliance and investigations work across Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the US.
We are working on some of the biggest, most sensitive and complex corruption cases currently being undertaken globally, many involving multiple jurisdictions, regulators and law enforcement bodies.
We provide risk assessments, training, due diligence, internal reviews, document drafting and other advice to clients of all sizes to ensure they are fully prepared to meet their compliance obligations and to avoid problems arising.
