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.

Through our multi-jurisdictional presence, we assist clients seamlessly across borders. Our attorneys and consultants are deeply knowledgeable about local business practices and cultures, which allows us to provide a unique blend of legal and practical advice in this complex field.

  • Advising clients on local anti-corruption laws, regulatory regimes, and business culture
  • Designing, advising, and implementing compliance programs
  • Advising clients on the FCPA and the U.K. Bribery Act
  • Conducting anti-corruption due diligence, as well as compliance and regulatory audits, on agents, partners, and M&A targets
  • Performing anti-corruption risk assessments
  • Overseeing internal corporate investigations
  • Defending and prosecuting corruption-related allegations
  • Assisting with asset recovery and protection

Tilleke & Gibbins is an active partner or member of several anti-corruption organizations, including:

TRACE International. Tilleke & Gibbins is proud to serve as the exclusive TRACE Partner Law Firm in both Thailand and Cambodia. TRACE International, a nonprofit association that provides practical and cost-effective anti-bribery compliance solutions for multinational companies, granted this designation to our firm in recognition of our “exceptional experience in and knowledge of anti-bribery laws and related compliance matters.”

Our lawyers and consultants develop real-world solutions that cross borders and practice areas. Read about some of our recent victories below. Among our recent matters, we have:
