In the age of the Car Wash prosecutions in Brazil, the Panama Papers, and myriad other high-profile anti-corruption and related global compliance risk cases, regulatory due diligence is no longer a lesser consideration in cross-border M&A transactions.  In many cases, diligence teams include legal compliance advisors and white collar attorneys from multiple jurisdictions.  In the current environment, assessing deal value in the face of significant regulatory risks, in a compressed M&A timeframe, requires exceptional coordination and business acumen. Examination of a recent case study provides valuable insights on these and related challenges.
