Global Anti-Corruption Perspective

The Global Anti-Corruption Perspective, Q4 2021

The Global Anti-Corruption Perspective

Welcome to our newly re-launched newsletter, The Global Anti-Corruption Perspective. In this quarterly, we provide our perspective on the latest anti-corruption developments around the world, along with practical insights for those operating in the space.

In this issue, we reflect on the past year and how the global pandemic has impacted the way companies address corruption risks.  We also highlight the latest anti-corruption developments in two key Asia Pacific jurisdictions, and we reflect on the past four years of enforcement of the Sapin II law and likely next moves for France’s anti-corruption enforcers. 

With its core team of dedicated FCPA,  anti-bribery and anti-corruption investigations and compliance lawyers across the globe, DLA Piper remains focused on being a global thought leader at the forefront of the latest issues and developments relevant to our clients.

Please enjoy these articles, and if you have any questions about the implications of the issues we raise here, please reach out to the authors or to any of our global co-chairs – Karl Buch and Jon King in the US, Patrick Rappo in the UK and Adam Vause in Dubai – or to either of our editors, Aurelie Ercoli and Mason M. Hubbard.
