Description

The UK's Bribery Act reforms criminal law to provide a new, modern, and comprehensive scheme of bribery offenses that will enable UK courts and prosecutors to respond more effectively to bribery at home or abroad. This book summarizes and interprets the new law of bribery, covering the general bribery offense, foreign public offenses, and the specific corporate offense designed to make companies and other corporate bodies responsible for bribery committed on behalf of a company. In addition, the book provides practical guidance on setting up compliance procedures in line with the new Act and explains the impact of the new legislation through worked scenarios.
