Corruption and graft are phenomena that in Mexico pervade politics, economics and society. That is one reason why all eyes are now on the upcoming implementation of El Sistema Nacional Anticorrupción. Mexico’s new anti-bribery legislation will have a major impact across the board from multinationals to law firms. It is thus that the latter are keen to optimally prepare themselves for new compliance challenges — in order to assure that business operations can continue unabatedly and in compliance with the new legislation. Importantly, both inside and outside counsel need to know to what extent the new anti-corruption system interacts with America’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, such as where Mexico’s legislation mandates stricter enforcement but also where the FCPA continues to be the primary measure of compliant business practices. The reason for this is that Mexico remains a hot market for investment across industries where competitive advantages can not only be maintained but extended.
