International Corruption provides a comprehensive guide to UK and international anti-corruption legislation  and caselaw concerning the bribery of foreign officials. Of particular focus is the process of a corruption investigation, the powers regulators hold, and the steps companies can take with regards to ensuring compliance minimising liability. Key legislation covered includes the Bribery Act 2010, the Crime and Security Act 2010, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1997, the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, and the anti-corruption regimes in other jurisdictions around the world.

Key features:

  • Explains anti-corruption laws and investigative regimes in a variety of common and civil law jurisdictions
  • Sets out how the Serious Fraud Office and other regulators investigate and prosecute international bribery
  • Addresses the practical aspect of anti-corruption investigations, including forensic account issues
  • Examines court decisions and their effect on the law of corruption
  • Demonstrates how to design effective an anti-corruption compliance programme.

New to this edition:
  • The first book to consider the cases which now been concluded under the Bribery Act 2010, including in particular the SFO power to enter into Deferred Prosecution Agreements.
  • Illustrates the way in which the exceptional degree of cooperation in SFO v Rolls Royce resulted in a DPA despite the conduct apparently falling well outside the scope for such an agreement
  • Considers the scope of litigation privilege, in particular in light of the decision in The Director of the SFO v Eurasion Natural Resources Corporation where material generated by internal enquiries was found to be not subject to privilege
  • Presents the findings from the recent phases of OECD’s Working Group on Bribery which assesses States Parties’ compliance with the Convention
