Anti-bribery and corruption

Helping you address the spectrum of corruption challenges across the evolving global threat and regulatory landscape

A good reputation takes years to build—and just minutes to lose.

An allegation of bribery or corruption is one of the fastest ways a company can tarnish its reputation and cause untold stakeholder damage in today’s increasingly connected society.

Our recent economic crime survey found that 18% of respondents report having been victimized by bribery and corruption.

Despite attempts to foster a culture of ethics and compliance, business leaders find themselves up against constant risks and hazards: bribes, kickbacks and various third party corruption. Around the world, regulators and enforcement agencies are attempting to tackle corruption, and expanding the rules and regulations. And while regulators’ expectations of proactive and robust anti-bribery and corruption programs are increasing, so are the penalties for non-compliance.

You need to stay on top of these changes, and our forensics team, a selected monitor of World Bank Integrity Agreements, can help. We’ll advise you in building an effective compliance program, responding to allegations or remediating an incident—so you can focus on safeguarding your business, reputation and finances.

The World Bank estimates that over US$1 trillion is paid in bribes each year.

We help our clients design and implement proactive, effective, and efficient compliance programs, tailored to the risk profile and vulnerabilities of your organization.

We also assist clients in designing and/or executing their risk-based third party due diligence programs, a cornerstone of any effective compliance program. Our global network of intelligence specialists, coupled with our digital capabilities can provide you the information needed to truly understand who you’re doing business with.
