Representation of conglomerate in relation to international corruption investigation

Peters & Peters represented a conglomerate following the execution in 2010 of multiple search warrants by the SFO. The SFO investigation arose as a result of, and in conjunction with, worldwide enquiries, investigations and prosecutions. The conglomerate, its agents, officers and employees were suspected of making corrupt payments to foreign public officials over a number of years and in a number of jurisdictions. The firm advised on the SFO investigation in the UK. The bribery and corruption investigation is yet another example of the extensive cooperation between prosecuting authorities worldwide.
