Hannes Snellman’s Dispute Resolution Team advises clients in the field of anti-bribery and corruption, looking to prevent bribery and corruption within clients’ activities, both at the national and international level. We help our clients tackle the risks related to corruption and bribery and advise clients in cases where negative consequences have already arisen. We give tools for identifying and detecting challenges and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, codes of conduct, and best practices.

Our team’s practice covers assisting our clients in questions relating to the responsibilities of companies, management, and other individuals, such as employees. We assist clients who conduct business with public organisations, private companies, or both, and if needed, handle proceedings with the relevant authorities or courts. Our team also regularly assists clients in matters relating to hospitality involving clients’ different stakeholders. In addition, we provide tailored training sessions to clients relating to these issues.

Competition policy has emerged as one of the most important policies in Europe and, as such, the failure to comply can lead to heavy fines. However, for many companies, the most important consequence of an infringement is often the adverse press publicity this attracts and the consequent damage wrought to the company’s goodwill. What is more, a competition investigation in itself usually entails a high burden on the affected firm, with significant amounts of senior management time that will have to be committed to handling the questions raised by competition authorities. Therefore, working proactively is the cornerstone of our work.

In terms of compliance work, we are experienced in advising companies in their supply agreement schemes and assessing their multi-product rebate schemes, among other things. Furthermore, we have assisted clients in tailoring, evaluating, and updating competition compliance policies and company internal guidance.

We aim at managing our clients’ risks at all levels – namely the inquiry risk (the level of costs associated with an investigation), the substantive risk (the probability of a successful defence), and the sanction and relief risk (the level of costs associated with a proven infringement) – and at allocating the appropriate resources according to the risks involved. For instance, we have good working relationships with several premier economic consulting firms, but we also have the experience to assess, in each case, the need and value of hiring their services.

Hannes Snellman’s Procurement Team regularly advises clients on all stages of the procurement process and contractual term to ensure compliance with public procurement regulations.

The team’s practice includes matters related to prohibited tender collaboration, exclusion of suppliers from public tenders due to misconduct, and “self-cleaning” actions, i.e. measures to remedy past misconduct and prove reliability, or accept. We advise contracting authorities and entities and companies on the prevention of corruption: how to avoid conflicts of interest in public procurements and prevent bribery, also including other cases of undue influence in public procurements, i.e. “trading in influence”, and forbidden ways to influence tenders. We also advise clients on situations relating to in-house procurement and direct awards.
