Corporate Crime & Compliance

In Sweden, as in many other countries, companies and their representatives are subject to stringent requirements governing the conduct of operations in accordance with national and international anti corruption legislation. In particular, stringent requirements are imposed upon the companies’ ability to prevent, discover and react to corruption offences. 

The Corporate Crime & Compliance team has specialists with considerable experience within anti corruption, handling of misconduct and internal investigations. For example, we have team members with a background from the Financial Intelligence Unit, the Swedish Police’s National Corruption Group and the UN’s internal investigations organ.

Our advice is based upon international best practice and includes the following main areas:

  • Evaluation of existing anti-corruption work
  • Preparation and implementation of risk based compliance programmes regarding anti corruption
  • Due Diligence of business relations and in conjunction with M&A 
  • Investigations and handling of incidents and suspected misconduct

Our combined expertise

The Corporate Crime & Compliance team has access to the entire firm’s competence and can advise on individual matters which need to be considered in connection with a company’s regulatory compliance work.

Anti corruption

Vinge’s Corporate Crime & Compliance team assists clients within various sectors and industries in Sweden and internationally.

Internal investigations

When you meet us in connection with an incident which has either been discovered or is suspected, you have the entire competence of the firm available to be able to quickly identify the issues which need to be investigated and what other measures that need to be taken.
