Real Estate’s Anti-Corruption Crusade


29 Aug 2018

Anti-corruption questions have become an increasingly gating issue in real estate deals, especially those in high-risk business sectors and geographies, according to Morrison & Foerster partner Daniel Levison in the PERE article, “Real estate’s anti-corruption crusade” (subscription required). Some investors, says Mr. Levison, are seeking robust anti-bribery terms in transaction agreements despite not owning a majority stake in the venture.

“Whether or not you get such terms into any deal, and how strong those terms are, depend on the risk posed by the deal and your negotiation leverage,” he said.
