Bribery risks in infrastructure projects are significant and growing, with law enforcement around the globe focussing on projects both large and small.
On one end of the scale, Operation Carwash in Brazil and 1MDB in Malaysia involve billions of dollars of businesses and simultaneous investigations on multiple continents. Closer to home, Sweett Group recently pleaded guilty to a bribery offence in the UK and paid £1.4 million in penalties. Companies involved in infrastructure projects need to be as alert as ever.
Join Judy Krieg, Partner within the Regulations and Markets division at Shepherd and Wedderburn as she explains what companies need to be looking out for, as well as providing some practical advice on how to manage the bribery and corruption risks.
