We advice matters regarding anti-bribery, anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism-financing and unfair management, among other risks that may affect business activities in Colombia and abroad. We have become a strategic ally of the Secretariat for Transparency of the Colombian Presidency of the Republic in the structuring and promotion of Transparency and Anti-Corruption Agreements among bilateral commerce chambers and unions.

The scope of our work consists of providing legal assistance to local and foreign companies in scenarios involving the abovementioned areas, or where the risk of corruption may be present under local regulations. In addition, we assist our clients in: (i) conducting internal investigations and due diligence processes; (ii) making self-reports of criminal conduct before the relevant authorities; and (iii) designing and implementing remediation and risk mitigation measures and programs.

The compliance team also provides advice in M&A transactions to assess whether a target company or business has the appropriate anti-corruption compliance program, and the extent of any potential successor liability for the purchaser.
