Anticorruption Compliance and Investigations (Asia)

Duane Morris & Selvam advises corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships on developing internal anticorruption programs to educate officers, owners and employees in all aspects of compliance. We also counsel our clients on conducting internal investigations and defend companies in government investigations, criminal prosecutions and civil enforcement actions.

Are you compliant with Asian and US/UK anti-corruption laws?

Most countries in Asia have strict anticorruption legislation with heavy penalties for companies who are involved in bribery.

The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and UK Anti-Bribery Act apply to US/UK and non-US/UK companies doing business internationally. Other countries' laws may also apply to you.
