2020 Latin America Corruption Survey Media Coverage

Miller & Chevalier and 14 Latin American firms released the results of the 2020 Latin America Corruption Survey. According to this year's results corruption risk is at an all-time high. The vast majority of businesspeople indicate their country's anti-corruption laws are ineffective, yet there are signs of regionwide improvement in corporate compliance measures. More than half of the respondents (54 percent) believe corruption is a significant obstacle to doing business, up ten percent since 2012. Less than half (45 percent) of total survey respondents believe an offender would likely be prosecuted for corruption, down from sixty-six percent in 2008.

The survey is led by James Tillen, Matteson Ellis, Alejandra Montenegro Almonte, and Gregory Bates.

To date, press coverage of the survey has included articles in a variety of publications, including Bloomberg Law,, Journal Contabil Rede, Latinvex, La Nacion, and Corporate Compliance Insights.
