Business ethics and anti-corruption

Businesses today face an increasingly complex framework of established and evolving legislation and civil, criminal and regulatory risk. We have a dedicated team in Italy which is part of our global regulation and investigations practice, established to assist our clients as they navigate the evolving global and cross-border regulatory, compliance and government enforcement environment.

Our platform of more than 50 offices across the world allows us to navigate local legal and cultural issues with sensitivity and with the benefit of significant experience.

We offer our clients a deep understanding, both globally and locally, of legal, procedural, governance and reputational aspects of regulatory and compliance issues, investigations and litigation. Our team focuses on four key pillars of antitrust and competition, financial services regulation, investigations and tax.

Our approach is holistic: alongside clients, we work to fully understand our client’s business and environment to deliver a programme which manages every aspect of legal, reputational and operational risk.

Our global practice support team provides clients with a consistent and proven methodology for complying with document preservation and production requirements throughout the course of the case. Through the application of cutting edge technology hosted in data centres across the globe, lawyers are able to identify key documents and facts early in the investigation to assist in developing case strategies and priorities, with the further benefit of managing and reducing costs.

We combine wide-ranging experience and knowledge of best practice with a strategic focus on industry, particularly the key sectors of financial institutions; energy; infrastructure, mining and commodities; transport; technology and innovation; and life sciences and healthcare.
