Anti-Corruption & International Governance

With tremendous depth of experience, Miller Thomson’s Anti-Corruption and International Governance Group can assist with all aspects of this field. Our experience was gained through intimate involvement with the development of Canadian anti-corruption laws, holding leadership roles in Canada’s primary anti-corruption organization, and extensive hands-on experience in crisis management including searches and seizures, internal investigations, and prosecutions. It is this depth of experience that sets Miller Thomson apart from other law firms.
