Tilleke & Gibbins advises clients on anti-corruption matters in Southeast Asia. Many countries where we work are attractive destinations for foreign investment. They are also high-risk environments for corruption, asset concealment, fraud, and other forms of economic crime. The U.S. government has made prosecutions under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) a national priority, and more cases under the U.K. Bribery Act are expected. In addition, ASEAN governments are increasing their own anti-corruption efforts. Failing to curb or prevent corruption can have devastating economic, legal, and reputational consequences.
