Our market-leading practice includes specialists in environmental law, regulatory compliance and risk management, anti-bribery and corruption, international criminal law, human rights and sanctions.

Our experts have an extensive background in aiding state institutions to implement international standards and best practices in public policies and good governance reforms. Our specialisation lies mainly with international soft law anti-corruption regulations, security sector reforms and international labour regulations.

Certain anti-corruption and anti-fraud regulations such as the UK Bribery Act 2010, the French SAPIN II, and the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enjoy an extraterritorial application, which is why Dimension Legal RVS provides consultancy on drafting and adoption of compliance programs and later on negotiations with relevant bodies for the purpose of exclusion or reduction of possible sanctions.
