Latin Lawyer-GIR Live Anti-Corruption & Investigations: Mitigating Risk in TransactionsAugust 12, 2019 Latin Lawyer
Allison Everhardt, Associate Managing Director, participated in a panel at Latin Lawyer-GIR Live Anti-Corruption & Investigations on June 6, 2019.
No company or executive wants to buy, at least unknowingly, a corruption problem. On top of possible regulatory exposure, there is the terrifying prospect that an investment’s value could unexpectedly torpedo after an acquired company rightfully stops engaging in any past problematic practices, such as paying bribes.
This panel focused on risk-based anti-corruption due diligence, which is critical to understanding the value and appropriateness of a potential transaction, as well as the potential risk of successor liability. Panelists addressed the various considerations prospective buyers should take into account ahead of purchases, including identifying a target’s key anti-corruption risks, evaluating the effectiveness of its compliance program, and ensuring appropriate post-closing remediation.
Andrew Levine of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP in New York moderated a panel discussion between Christopher Georgiou of Deloitte in New York; Allison Everhardt of Nardello & Co. in Washington, DC; Leonel Pereznieto of Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enriquez in Mexico City; and Matt Galvin, vice president of ethics and compliance at Anheuser-Busch InBev in New York.read more
If women are so great why don’t more of them run the place?July 22, 2019 Financial Times By Pilita Clark
Nardello & Co. Founder & CEO Daniel Nardello in the Financial Times, discussing the business impact of #MeToo:
“Dan Nardello used to be a federal prosecutor in his native New York. Today he runs a global investigations agency he founded in London 16 years ago that ferrets out information on anything from a Wall Street bank to a Russian kleptocrat.
After nearly 30 years in the private investigation game, he says no other social shift has affected his business as much as the surge of sexual misconduct claims triggered by the Harvey Weinstein scandal that erupted in October 2017.”
