Muscat, November 4, 2014 – The Oman offices of international law firm Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle and KPMG, the global audit, tax and advisory firm, will jointly offer comprehensive anti-bribery and corruption procedures, processes, training and support to Omani companies, and international organisations with business interests in the Sultanate.
The collaboration between the market leading professional firms in Oman is a response to the Government of Oman’s increased focus on eliminating bribery and corruption. This includes the introduction and implementation of new local and international legislation, which has led to an increase in demand for such services by businesses throughout the Sultanate.
“Compliance is a hot topic right now in the Sultanate. Curtis and KPMG together can provide the right level of help for businesses. Some may require a comprehensive review of procedures, others may simply need the comfort of some reassuring pointers to improve their already excellent programmes” said Bruce Palmer, Managing Partner, Curtis Oman.
"The joint expertise and experience of Curtis and KPMG in Oman will allow us to offer something incredibly valuable to our clients. I look forward to us working together to help businesses in Oman to be better prepared to meet the risk and effects of fraud.", added Khalid Ansari, Partner in charge, KPMG in Oman.
The initiative combines the talents of Curtis’ lawyers and KPMG’s audit and compliance experts to support businesses in Oman to:
• Curb corrupt practices • Reduce risks and enhance stakeholder confidence • Protect their reputation • Update and improve existing compliance programmes to promote and guarantee the highest possible standard of business ethics
It follows a heavily-attended “Focus on Fraud” breakfast seminar hosted by Curtis, which featured KPMG’s head of risk, Paul Callaghan and Curtis Counsel Jamie Kellick, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Muscat in June 2014.
