Our experience means that we are well placed to advise corporates in relation to the financial crime elements of their internal procedures, and much of Fulcrum’s experience is in the context of advising corporates and individuals in relation to bribery and corruption.
We have experience of designing, implementing, and executing “adequate procedures” within the meaning of the UK Bribery Act 2010, and ensuring that procedures are compliant with guidance such as the US DOJ’s Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programmes guidance, and the SFO’s Corporate Compliance Programme guidance.
Moreover, drawing on our expertise in this area we have advised companies in the context of M&A transactions and upon the drafting of anti-bribery and corruption clauses in commercial documents.
Fulcrum Chambers is one of very few firms who have a real expertise in corporate white-collar defence and compliance processes. This comprehensive expertise allows them to provide a pragmatic, tailored advice to companies on compliance processes, as they are able to draw from their expertise in criminal defence.
