Conducting proper Due Diligence in today’s world has been described as an “art – not a science.”
And with the heightened enforcement of the FCPA and the UK Bribery Act, amplified by the temptations brought by the severe global recession, it’s no question: companies involved with agents or third-party intermediaries must finesse this art. Without it, you leave your company vulnerable to a shifting, crashing financial landscape, where there’s a growing allure to cut ethical corners for an extra dollar. Simply enacting, enforcing, and communicating anti-corruption/bribery policies is no longer enough.
Mastering proper Third Party Due Diligence can save your company thousands of headaches, and millions of dollars. It protects you from FCPA Liability for the conduct of a third party – as well as Successor Liability for the conduct of an acquired company – but, initially, it’s an involved task – a task that appears overwhelming at first sight.
