Corporate Compliance and Anti-Corruption
Amongst a worldwide consensus that bribery damages governments and business enterprises alike, a network of anti-bribery laws – national and international legislation – has emerged and is altering the way of doing business in a global scale. Foreign regulations have effects that reach beyond their national borders. Today, foreign government agencies can investigate and prosecute companies and individuals outside of their territory, with grave consequences ranging from harm to a company’s reputation, large civil and criminal fines, and possible imprisonment for its executives and employees.
Foreign companies doing business in Ecuador as well as Ecuadorian enterprises conducting business with foreign companies are now subject to these stringent regulations to different degrees.
