Scandals. Whistleblower cases. Leniency agreements.
With the continued establishment of new trade accords and the introduction of new regulatory frameworks across Latin America in recent years, the business and investment landscape in the region has never been more active. Investors from every industry and markets from around the world continue to look at Latin America as a destination for growing their operations and reaching a new customer base – but with governments driving efforts to curb corrupt practices, multinational companies operating in in the region must take a hard look at what they are doing to prevent, detect and respond to corporate misconduct.
