Lextegrity’s software is the leading compliance solution in the market related to managing risks related to fraud, corruption, sanctions, kickbacks, and conflicts of interest. Our software has been before enforcement agencies globally in 12 separate company engagements and was even cited by the SEC as a remediation factor in a client’s FCPA resolution. It has been chosen after the appointment of compliance monitors or after the start of an investigation and has been a factor in resolving those matters, including helping to secure a DOJ declination.
Lextegrity’s software has assisted global companies in connection with enforcement agency actions in the United States, Brazil, Canada, France, Sweden, Switzerland and South Africa, as well as by the World Bank.
The June 2020 update to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs guidance (2020 Guidance), emphasized that companies need to anticipate and proactively identify risk by having access to, and using, data. The 2020 Guidance emphasized that corporate compliance programs must utilize actionable risk insights on an ongoing basis and specifically notes that companies should focus their resources on high-risk transactions.
“Prosecutors may credit the quality and effectiveness of a risk-based compliance program that devotes appropriate attention and resources to high-risk transactions, even if it fails to prevent an infraction.”

Since 2020, the DOJ has heightened its expectations to include immediate detection of non-compliance. In May 2022, Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Polite, a former in-house Chief Compliance Officer himself, stated:
“I want to know whether you are doing everything you can to ensure that when an individual employee is facing that singular ethical challenge, he has been informed, he has been trained, and he has been empowered to choose right over wrong. Or, if he makes the wrong choice, you have a system that immediately detects, remediates, disciplines, and then adapts to ensure that no others follow suit (emphasis added).”

“I would have viewed Lextegrity’s approach of managing risk across the life-cycle of spend – from the due diligence process through the spend process itself – very favorably. A technology and approach that tests the entirety of your financial transactions using multiple risk analyses simultaneously provides a much higher degree of comfort around whether your program is actually operating effectively than doing due diligence only or relying only on infrequent sample based auditing to supplement your diligence. In fact, a handful of companies have implemented exactly this approach and shown it to the DOJ over the years and prosecutors know first-hand what is now possible and will continue to expect organizations to up their game and implement solutions like that.”
