"Prevention and early detection are probably more cost effective than waiting for it to be too late - then you've got the cost of the investigation and the cost of reputation damage as well."

Senior Director, Investigations and Disputes, Kroll 

"There are specific questions we ask the management of the companies with which we are in talks to acquire, and specific things we look for."

"We're so heavily regulated that it's no surprise to anyone that we need to be mindful of anti-bribery - every Roche affiliate has a different industry code that it applies to."
