Anti-Bribery and Corruption

We provide expert advice on the full range of international anti-corruption issues globally.

Our team includes former prosecutors in the U.S. and Europe and has worked on some of the most significant cases to date in the UK. Thanks to our past governmental and recent defence experience, our lawyers are known and respected by leading prosecutors and regulators in the U.S., Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

We routinely act on complex, multi-jurisdictional corruption matters. Our global reach gives us expertise in local law in multiple jurisdictions and the offices throughout our network work closely together. This is important because corruption investigations are usually cross-border and, because different legal systems and cultures vary in their regulatory regimes, and do not treat issues such as privacy, data protection, employee protection and privilege in the same way. Consequently, our lawyers are able to provide clients with well-rounded and insightful advice that addresses local issues as well as the risks to a global business that arise from cross-border investigations. We can credibly present this analysis to regulators across jurisdictions to protect our clients' positions.

We have a track record of handling significant, high-profile bribery and corruption issues for blue-chip multinationals including: assisting with policies and procedures; risk management; handling global investigations; and defence. We also regularly conduct due diligence into, and advise on strategies to deal with, foreign agents or intermediaries and mergers and acquisitions/joint venture targets.

Our experience of working on corruption matters with lawyers in jurisdictions where we do not have an office means that we are well placed to recommend trusted local counsel with specialist corruption expertise. Our established working relationships mean that we form integrated teams and are used to managing multiple parties to deliver a high-quality service efficiently.
