The story so far......
In 2010 Leighton Holdings Limited thought it was a good idea to employ a 'door opener' to assist in gaining big ticket international contacts through one of its entities Leighton Offshore.
Four years later both the 'door opener' and Leighton were under investigation across multiple jurisdictions for allegedly corrupt conduct, as contractor and sub-contractor the pair had fallen out and a British court ordered the company to pay an additional est. US$18.37 million to its 'door opener' and, the company's credit rating had slumped.
The then sixty-five year old company was taken over by Spanish multinational
Actividades de Construcción y Servicios (ACS) and, in 2015 its name changed to CIMIC Group Limited.
