Corruption, Bribery & Remediation
In conjunction with our investigations services, we also advise on remediation steps to address weaknesses in the controls of the business; which may have come to light as a result of an investigation into corruption or bribery allegations.
Case Study: Hostile Environment Investigation
A UK organisation requested an investigation into alleged corruption within a company headquartered in a war zone. A forensic audit was undertaken, including a review of books and records, and interviews with the directors of the company. The investigation was conducted in the country, and was conducted with sensitivity towards both the target investigated and the client. The team undertook Hostile Environment Training for the assignment.
