White Collar Defense & Investigations

Global white collar criminal investigations are on the rise. Compliance efforts, like the U.S. based Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), are more relevant than ever, and new laws in Brazil, China, Russia, the United Kingdom, and many other countries have dramatically increased due diligence and formal government investigations on a global scale.

Unlike many other litigation support service providers, TLS assists with both compliance and investigative efforts. We consult with corporate and outside counsel on international compliance policies and can conduct training and reporting programs to help companies prepare for potential challenges. We also compile an annual study to understand and compare trends against independent studies performed by corruption agencies. Combining our global presence with our cultural consulting expertise, TLS is the ideal company to assist with:

  • Multilingual Dodd-Frank Whistleblower hotlines
  • Localization of ethics policies, trainings, e-learning modules, and corporate intranet sites
  • Assistance with litigation holds
