WTAII helps clients evaluate corruption risks that can arise from contemplated transactions. Companies that conduct credible diligence during acquisitions are less likely to inherit criminal liability for an acquired entity’s conduct. Diligence also can help acquiring companies determine whether businesses they are contemplating purchasing can be operated without paying bribes and kickbacks. WTAII also helps clients evaluate corruption risks that may arise from the use of third-party agents and business dealings with counterparties.
