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 US and a former chief prosecutor in Europe and has worked on the most significant case 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 US, the UK and around Europe. We are one of a few practices that have partners with in-depth experience of managing corruption investigations across Europe, the US, the Middle East and Asia.
We routinely act on complex, multi-jurisdictional corruption matters. Our international 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 have different regulatory regimes and so 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 rounded and insightful advice that addresses local issues as well as the risks to a global business arising from cross-border investigations. We can credibly present this analysis to regulators across jurisdictions (including the UK and the US) to protect our clients’ positions.
