Financial crime and AML advisory

Deloitte helps companies protect their brand and reputation by proactively advising on their exposure to fraud, corruption, and other financial crime issues.

Anti-money laundering (AML), sanctions, and regulatory advisory

Reputation protection

Businesses around the world face a growing number of reputation-damaging risks, from being victimized by fraud and theft of assets to being embroiled in complex litigation or business disputes or accused of financial mismanagement or malfeasance.

Our professionals provide specialized services to help you protect your reputation, including financial due diligence, fraud detection and prevention training, anti-money laundering assessments, background checks, and business partner surveys.

Our review team consists of qualified Canadian lawyers who are experienced in handling sensitive, confidential and time-critical projects of all sizes in both English and French.

Anti-corruption and bribery, anti-fraud

Compliance amid rising concern

Achieving compliance with the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (CFPOA), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and similar anti-corruption legislative requirements has become an increasing concern for organizations that operate globally, as the number of FCPA-related enforcement actions and the size of penalties have increased dramatically in recent years.
