Corporate Foreign Affairs & Risk Management

Navigating the complexities of a country or region’s politics, economy and culture can be a daunting task, even for experts.

We provide advice and representation so that you can make the best decision possible about whether to invest in a country, expand your operations or limit your losses. We focus on the strategic implications of your decisions, negotiate on your behalf and source the most objective information possible.

When the worst happens and your employee is detained by a foreign government – often as a tactic in a commercial dispute – we work with you to develop the most effective plan to obtain their timely release.

This aspect of our work is often performed in conjunction with our sister company, The Ofelas Group Inc. We also engage country experts through our global network of foreign affairs and risk management experts.

A major threat to a company’s reputation and value is the practice of paying bribes to foreign officials. In many countries, the pressure to “facilitate” work is extreme. But the consequences can be dramatic including prosecution under corrupt foreign practices laws and debarment by development banks. We work with anti-corruption experts to build best practices for your firm and in crafting the most appropriate response to the situation you face.
