“Anti-bribery laws make overseas operations risky business, panel says” by Kim Arnott, Thelawyersdaily.ca

Thelawyersdaily.ca quotes Ottawa lawyer Peter Mantas in an article about anti-bribery laws and overseas business operations.

“The risk for companies working in the extractive sector is particularly high, said Peter Mantas, an Ottawa-based partner with Fasken Martineau and co-leader of the firm’s white collar defence and investigations group.”

“Controlling for corruption and bribery is not always easy,” he added. “You need to create the right policies and take the right steps, but there’s still a pretty high risk something is going to go wrong along the way.”
