“A well-designed compliance program should apply risk-based due diligence to its third party relationships… [and] should include comprehensive due diligence of any acquisition targets.” DOJ Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs Guidance, June 2020
It is well recognised that the vast majority of anti-bribery related enforcement actions brought by the authorities in the US, UK and other jurisdictions against companies relates to the conduct of their third parties. There are also a number of recent, high profile examples of companies incurring direct liability or significant costs (in the form of fines, investigation expenses and compliance remediation costs) arising from the historic conduct of recently acquired subsidiaries.
In the latest in a series of webinars to mark the 10th anniversary of the UK Bribery Act, we have assembled a panel of experts to discuss current best practices in:
- designing and implementing risk-based third party due diligence procedures;
- conducting pre and post-acquisition due diligence on M&A targets;
- managing potential anti-bribery risk in JVs through due diligence.
The webinar is one hour long and will take place twice in the same day to cover various time zones.
