Bribery and corruption investigations
The Bribery Act 2010 was incorporated to codify existing legislation creating offences around allegedly corrupt payments in corporate life. It also created new offences imputing corporate liability vicariously. It has never been more important to ensure compliance procedures robustly protect your company against the risk of corruption by rogue employees, agents and clients. The Serious Fraud Office has dramatically increased investigations and prosecutions in this field in recent years and its focus can extend to historical transactions inside and outside the jurisdiction.
Our specialist team can offer advice and representation in connection with investigations and prosecutions in this field. We are also able to offer advice to companies and individuals about the status of historical transactions and provide comprehensive strategic planning to protect against future encroachment.
