Global Anti-Bribery and Corruption Statute Services
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 team provides information and insight based on decades of behind-the-headlines involvement in critical issues and complex business challenges from around the world.
Safeguarding a company’s hard-earned reputation is of paramount importance to today’s global business organisations. 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 antibribery and corruption statutes. The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (The “FCPA”), The UK 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 crossdebarment 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, 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 investigations, forensic accounting and information preservation experts); and in monitoring and remediation (designing and testing controls modifications, or pursuant to prosecutorial settlement agreements).
