Case Study

Due Diligence corruption investigation in Ghana

TDI investigated ongoing corruption allegations against an energy company’s subcontractor in Ghana. Our investigation determined that the subcontractor and its management team had engaged in systemic bribery and corruption to win lucrative contracts in several West African countries. We identified multiple networks of local contacts and companies that the subcontractor used to conduct business, thereby exerting significant pressure on local decision-making authorities without being directly involved in the process. With this information and our strategic counsel, the client was able to rapidly and discreetly separate themselves from the subcontractor, protecting both the company and its shareholders from future regulatory risk.
