Sophisticated financial and strategic buyers are becoming ever more aware of the importance of compliance-related due diligence in cross-border M&A transactions, especially where FCPA/anticorruption risk may be at issue.  The DOJ and SEC have emphasized the responsibility of buyers to perform adequate diligence and significant FCPA-related fines and penalties arising in the wake of corporate acquisitions show the importance of adequately assessing such risk before a transaction.  Having the right expertise and a strong track record of diligence and analysis of FCPA risk during a deal can be useful if an issue does arise.  A key step in adequately assessing such issues is understanding important areas of anticorruption risk to look for when evaluating a target.
