Know Thy (Global) Business Partner!

At a time when anti-terrorism efforts are running high, state-imposed sanctions abound, with the United States and United Kingdom leading the crack down on bribery, corruption, money laundering and cross-border profit-shifting. For businesses with global operations, that means making sure all deals are thoroughly vetted and above board — or facing the consequences.
