We also regularly assist clients in creating, implementing and reviewing their anti-bribery and compliance programs.
Our experience covers the full range of issues associated with potential corruption including investigating related activities such as bid rigging, tender law violations, and embezzlement. We have a global reach, having addressed matters in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Israel, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. And we have developed an extensive network of partners with whom we collaborate as necessary for forensic and accounting services tailored to our clients’ individual needs.

At Greene Espel, we tailor every representation to the client's business needs. We begin by seeking a deep understanding of the client's motivations, concerns, and objectives. We then develop a strategy around those objectives, and manage and measure our performance against the plans and budgets we agree upon with the client.
