A point of no return

In recent years, corruption has come to dominate the agenda in Latin America. As the list of companies under investigation grows, has the legal profession been complicit, and can law firms play a greater role in the fight against bribery?

A point of no return

Illustrations by Joe Hodgkiss Turning points are difficult to identify at the time, but they often seem crystal clear in retrospect. In Italy’s complicated relationship with the Mafia, for instance, many see the assassinations of the prominent Sicilian anti-Mafia prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in 1992 as the point at which the country started to take its organised crime problem seriously. Looking back, this connection seems obvious, but at the time it was dismissed by some as just another instance of the mob flexing its muscles.
