Fasken Martineau's White Collar Crime, Investigations & Compliance Group is pleased to invite you to a complimentary seminar on how you can protect your business from corruption in the supply chain and what really happens if your business is being investigated for corrupt behaviour. Businesses, both large and small, are exposed to the threat of corruption. Whether it be within your organisation or in your supply chain, the existence of corruption can be detrimental to your business and your reputation.
Facing an investigation can be a daunting experience; the stress it can put you and your business under should not be underestimated. Knowing the stages of an investigation, what is expected from you, realistic timelines and potential penalties you could face are all useful elements to be aware of should you find your business in this situation.
In this session we will begin with an overview discussing what exactly qualifies as "corrupt behaviour," where corruption often exists within an organisation and what the implications are for you if corruption occurs in your foreign operations. We will then discuss what really happens when the authorities get involved, cooperating with investigations, the potential penalties you could face if convicted of a corrupt offence and how to recover in the aftermath of an investigation. We will also highlight prominent case studies with useful lessons learned.
