The UK’s Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1st July 2011. The legislation has wide territorial reach and applies to companies and individuals with little connection to the UK; completing a deal in the UK or employing a UK resident can be enough for the Act to bite. It covers bribery committed by the organisation, or on its behalf, anywhere in the world. We have substantial experience representing companies of interest to UK and foreign agencies investigating alleged corruption and bribery.
Members of our team have worked with specialist counsel in other countries including the US, Canada, Russia, China and Germany to conduct cross-border investigations often with the involvement of multiple regulators.
We provide face to face training to our clients on this key subject or via live or recorded broadcasts in multiple languages from our in-house studios.
