Our team has unmatched experience in providing cross-border anti-corruption advice to global corporates. Enforcement of anti-bribery laws and collaboration between regulatory authorities has increased dramatically in recent times and is at the forefront of the issues facing businesses. Our anti-bribery & corruption team advises in connection with implementing and monitoring compliance programmes, internal and external investigations, disclosures to regulators and throughout regulatory enforcement or criminal action.
We have a strong track record advising in relation to bribery and corruption, market abuse/collusion, fraud and breach of sanctions. Corruption investigations are usually cross-border and across different legal systems and regulatory regimes. Our combination of sector expertise, global offering and insight into the thinking of regulators and law enforcement agencies enables us to anticipate potential issues, so that we can guide our clients swiftly through them and with minimal impact to their operations.
Our team has built a strong reputation for knowledge of, and action on, international issues such as anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) and anti-money laundering (AML). We also support General Counsel and Compliance Officers on matters such as facilitation payments, offshore payments, the use of agents and consultants and dealings with public officials on government contracts and in relation to potential tax violations.
