Overview

In Italy, bribery and corruption (and other criminal offences) may entail corporate liability under Legislative Decree 231 of June 8, 2001, attracting sanctions ranging from a prohibition against carrying on business or participating in tenders to public authorities for public works.
Since the adoption of the Decree, we have formed a multi-disciplinary team including external consultants and criminal lawyers, to advise companies across all sectors on the preparation, adoption and implementation of organizational models. Our Italian team offers informed advice and practical assistance in this sector, focusing on helping businesses to avoid structures which may paralyze their commercial activities or inflate compliance costs and to guarantee the model's ability to prevent efficiently the offences at which it is directed. 
Our assistance to clients, across a variety of industry sectors, includes the risk assessment and gap analysis with existing internal control systems, the preparation, adaptation and audit of models, the assistance on the formation of the internal control body and of the Supervisory Body and the delivery of training to employees and management on implementation of models and ethic codes.
