The introduction to your business of inadequately screened and monitored third parties directly correlates with the introduction of risk. We help individuals and organizations identify and mitigate risks associated with engaging with third parties such as agents, consultants, customs brokers, distributors, vendors, suppliers, and business partners by conducting comprehensive due diligence. Parent companies could also have responsibility for the actions of its subsidiaries and joint ventures.
Risks Associated with Third Parties Conducting Business on Your Behalf
Under some circumstances, an organization may be liable for corrupt payments made by a third party conducting business on its behalf, even if payments were not authorized. Prosecutions for willful blindness are relatively common. Failing to investigate and mitigate third party risks or ignoring “red flags” can satisfy the “knowledge” requirement for such prosecutions.
