Forensic and Litigation Consulting
October 7, 2011
As the global business advisory firm behind today’s headline-making investigations, trials and regulatory matters, FTI Consulting helps organizations anticipate, illuminate and overcome complex challenges for the short- and long-term benefit of their business. Whether conducting or responding to a foreign bribery or corruption investigation, evaluating potential foreign business transactions or designing compliance programs, having the right information at the right time is critical. The multidisciplinary FTI Consulting Investigations and Forensic Accounting practice provides information and insight gleaned from decades of behind-the-headlines involvement in critical issues and complex business challenges around the world.
Safeguarding a company’s hard-earned reputation is of paramount importance to today’s global business organizations. As corporations seek out emerging markets to drive market share growth, source supplies and components, or form joint ventures with new business partners abroad, corporate officers and directors must remain vigilant to avoid potential violations of applicable global anti-bribery and corruption statutes. The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (The “FCPA”), The U.K. Bribery Act, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) convention on combating bribery of foreign public officials in international business transactions, and the anti-corruption cross-debarment pact reached between the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Asian Development Bank, and the African Development Bank Group, together form a robust global anti-bribery and corruption regulatory regime with long-arm jurisdiction and very significant penalties for violators. FTI Consulting is uniquely qualified to help our clients navigate anti-bribery and corruption risk proactively (assessing and mitigating risk); reactively (responding to allegations with multidisciplinary investigation, forensic accounting and information preservation experts); and in monitoring and remediation (designing and testing controls modifications, or pursuant to prosecutorial settlement agreements).
