Inquires and More



Conducting business in the global marketplace presents a multitude of financial and operational challenges, including potential bribery and corruption activities, that can expose companies to severe fines and penalties as well as regulatory scrutiny. Failing to prevent bribery and corruption across relationships with customers, vendors, and other third parties can disrupt business operations and significantly affect employee morale and performance. These consequences could create long-term threats that put an organization's reputation, operations, and long-term viability at risk.

The growing complexity and effectiveness of anti-corruption regulatory enforcement requires organizations to develop effective investigative protocols. Protocols enable organizations to gauge the scope and severity of potential noncompliance. Organizations that understand and responsibly remediate instances of misconduct have more productive outcomes both internally and with regulators, including the chance of avoiding imposition of a monitor.

Pallas Consultants delivers both reactive anti-bribery and anti-corruption investigations and proactive compliance solutions. When allegations are raised, our anti-corruption experts conduct thorough investigations to identify bad actors and determine appropriate actions. Our team also designs and implements tailored anti-corruption solutions that allow our clients to focus on their core business with fortified compliance.

No business is immune to corruption - whether it's deliberate or unintentional. Many companies don’t assess corruption threats until they have already occurred, or assess such threats separately from other compliance risk areas such as money laundering or sanctions. Pallas Consultants offers an alternative.

Our team routinely assists clients in defending against government enforcement inquiries, drawing on our significant public service experience. We have maintained strong working relationships with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission, financial institution regulators, the UK Serious Fraud Office, and a variety of other global agencies through our numerous engagements involving high-profile and high-stakes government enforcement matters.
