A proactive approach to avoiding liability

If you violate Canada's Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (CFPOA), you could face major criminal and civil penalties, plus the risk of reputational damage. And depending on the suspect violations, you may also face scrutiny abroad under the American Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act.

We provide clear, practical legal advice and will make sure you’re compliant with anti-corruption regimes in Canada and worldwide.
