Bribery and Corruption Investigations

Allen & Overy boasts substantial international experience of handling complex bribery and corruption investigations. 

With international regulators increasingly pursuing enforcement of bribery and corruption laws, notably the UK Bribery Act and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and growing cooperation between agencies, clients require counsel with a proven track record of handling such scenarios. Our market leading teams across Asia, Europe and North America combine local expertise with a proven track record of handling cross-border investigations, advising on divergent regulatory regimes, and local approaches to privacy, data protection, employee protection and privilege.

A&O advises on the most significant and high-profile bribery and corruption investigations for multinational companies, handling crisis management, conducting both internal and governmental investigations, liaising and negotiating with authorities and defending enforcement actions.

We help clients to pre-emptively assess and address bribery and corruption exposure and risk, conducting due diligence and advising on strategies to deal with foreign agents or intermediaries and M&A/joint venture targets.
