Anti-Corruption

Led by Michael, we advise clients on anti-corruption matters in Vietnam. While Vietnam is an attractive place for foreign investment, it is also a high-risk environment for bribery, embezzlement, fraud, and other forms of economic crime. Prosecutions under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the U.K. Bribery Act are increasing. Failing to curb or prevent corruption can have devastating economic, legal, and reputational consequences.
