How can we help you?

There is a clear trend internationally that authorities increasingly are following up the fight against corruption by requiring that the companies have implemented robust preventive methods. Norwegian companies with international activity should be aware that both the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and British Bribery Act have broad impact and under given circumstances can apply to Norwegian organisations. In addition Norwegian anti-corruption regulations can in given situations apply to acts committed abroad. We develop and implement a customised  anti-corruption program to prevent and detect corruption and other financial crime.

Compliance with competition legislation is increasingly important. Every company is obliged to ensure that it does not violate the prohibitions on unlawful collusion or abuse of market power. In these areas Norwegian companies must largely adhere to a legal landscape that follows developments within the EU/EEA.
