Reference: IMD-3-1849

Baldev, the legal council of Global Logistic, faced accusations of foul play in acquiring authorization for Global Logistic Inc. to build their logistics center in the most interesting location of Vietnam’s largest development project. When Baldev confronted his superiors with those allegations, they categorically denied any wrongdoing. Baldev felt caught between a rock and a hard place. It was his responsibility to make sure everything was done lawfully, but there appeared to be no solution that wouldn’t compromise his career one way or another.
