Drawing from the expertise of Lex Mundi member law firms, Lex Mundi’s Anti-Corruption Compliance Guide, sets out a summary of the legal landscape in 18 jurisdictions in Latin America.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) April 13, 2018
Lex Mundi has published a new interactive guide, the Lex Mundi Anti-Corruption Compliance Guide with a Focus on Latin America.
This complimentary resource, developed by Latin American members of Lex Mundi, is an interactive tool to help in-house counsel and corporate legal teams understand how to apply anti-corruption laws in jurisdictions in which they operate and the way in which they conduct their business in jurisdictions across the region.
In Latin America, several countries have amended their legislation to facilitate the prosecution of bribe payments, and in other countries, enforcement has been strengthened and the number of investigations and prosecutions has escalated. Drawing from the expertise of Lex Mundi member law firms, Lex Mundi’s Anti-Corruption Compliance Guide, sets out a summary of the legal landscape in 18 jurisdictions in Latin America.
The guide’s innovative format allows users to search for and download an individual jurisdiction’s report or compare information and requirements from multiple jurisdictions in a side-by-side customizable report. This guide can be accessed free of charge on the Lex Mundi website.
