Anti Bribery and Corruption

Tackling bribery is becoming a high priority for an increasing number of nations. Those investigated need to know how to assess the allegations and manage their communications with the authorities.

Investigating bribery is an increasingly high priority for authorities around the world. If you or your company are the subjects of such an investigation you need to know how to respond – immediately.

Our experience in managing major global bribery investigations is second to none. At Rahman Ravelli, cases involving the UK’s Bribery Act 2010, the United States’ Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 and other notable anti-corruption legislation are a large and regular part of our workload.

We routinely conduct internal investigations for companies that suspect they have become involved in bribery and we advise them on how to communicate with the authorities. Our excellence in such investigations has been noted by national and international legal guides.

Experienced Anti Bribery Lawyers

At Rahman Ravelli, we are adept at managing an investigation to maximise the likelihood of a criminal prosecution being avoided. When it comes to deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs) – a recently-introduced UK alternative to criminal prosecution - Rahman Ravelli has more experience than most. We are one of the very few legal firms to have managed a case that has involved DPA negotiations.

As bribery moves up the agenda of many countries’ law enforcement agencies, everyone in business needs the best legal representation if they became the subject of an investigation. Rahman Ravelli provides that representation.


Whatever the business sector and wherever in the world that business is being done, we have the expertise and international network of associates to obtain the best conclusion to a bribery investigation.

Whether it be mining and the extractive industries, aviation and defence, construction, energy, pharmaceuticals, financial services, transportation and logistics or any other area where law enforcement agencies are investigating bribery, our experienced bribery and corruption solicitors represent clients in the most notable, complex and multinational cases.

Our knowledge of how to co-ordinate cases that cross borders, involve more than one investigating agency Multi-Agency and Multi-Jurisdictional Investigations or touch on complicated legal or financial issues makes us the logical choice for the company or individual that is facing a bribery investigation.

We provide a bespoke legal team of bribery and corruption lawyers who will swiftly and robustly defend your interests and, when necessary, negotiate with the authorities to secure the most favourable outcome.
