Anti-Corruption Due Diligence for a Global Corporation

  • Background
    A law firm acting on behalf of a multinational corporation engaged Veracity to investigate corruption allegations against a long-standing local agent in Brazil representing $100 million in annual sales that involved significant government contracts.
  • Action
    Veracity conducted extensive research into the activities of the local agent and the origins of the allegations. Specific information Veracity gleaned from interviews with knowledgeable sources, combined with publicly-available information related to Brazilian government investigations, led us to determine that the local partner was not linked to the alleged bribery and that the initial allegations originated with a competitor that was attempting to disqualify the client from a particular tender.
  • Results
    Using this information, the client was able to consider preemptively disclosing information to authorities, continue the relationship with its agent, and participate in the government tender.
