Practice & Industry Groups

Compliance & Investigations

Members of WLG's Compliance & Investigations Group focus on anti-corruption and anti-bribery, white-collar crimes, anti-money laundering, internal investigations related to the aforementioned topics, and compliance programs.

Lawmakers and regulators around the globe have demonstrated an increased focus on preventing, investigating, and prosecuting: (i) corruption and bribery, (ii) white-collar crimes, (iii) money laundering, and (iv) fraud in government contracts and procurement, both in the national and international scenes. Lawyers in WLG's Compliance & Investigations Group help corporations develop strong compliance programs, not only focused on prevention of this conduct, but also on training, auditing, and investigating any corporate misbehavior.

The group is also a platform to share knowledge and insights into investigations happening in their jurisdictions, and best practices to implement in anticipation of similar investigations in other jurisdictions. They meet regularly via virtual meetings, and collaborate on webinars and global comparative guides.
