Anti-Corruption

White-collar criminals do not use violence or threats to break the law. Opportunity, deception, concealment and the violation of trust are the tools of their trade.

To fight back against this type of corruption, a competent knowledge of auditing, accounting, criminology, law, information technology, and business/financial investigation and analysis is required. Anti-corruption not only draws upon these necessary skills but also demands creativity. It takes the ability to develop fresh approaches, look beyond the numbers, find underlying facts and fill in the blanks when the figures are missing.

The lawyers, the Certified Anti-Corruption Managers (CACMs), the Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) and the Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) of the LGC offer a broad range of anticorruption and forensic services to help you deal with these times of adversity. When a fraud, corruption or theft has been committed, it is essential for you to know the extent of it, how it was perpetrated, who the involved parties are, opportunities for recovery and how to prevent a recurrence in the future.
