About Bribery: A Compliance Handbook

“One of the great strengths of this book is the way the authors blend good practical legal advice, genuine insight about the attitude and approach of the authorities in the UK, and off-the-shelf policies to help corporate bodies navigate their way through these often difficult waters… The game has changed and those who ignore the practical advice offered in this book do so at their own peril.”
Sir Keir Starmer KCB QC, Director of Public Prosecutions 2008–13 (from the foreword to the book)

Bribery: A Compliance Handbook is a practical guide to regulation in relation to corrupt practices. The book considers the safeguards and practical measures that organisations should put in place to prevent prosecution or regulatory action. It is a compliance text focussing on the requisite measures to be put into place by company directors and compliance officers to avoid liability.

This book is a reference point for those concerned with regulation of potentially corrupt activities. It covers the current bribery legislation in the UK and the domestic and international context within which it was enacted and reviews each of the principal offences and considers some case studies and issues that affect particular sectors. The emphasis of the book is on preventative matters rather than defending subsequent prosecutions and will appeal not just to lawyers, but to compliance officers, non executive directors and others who are required to be aware of the provisions.

Bribery: A Compliance Handbook is essential reading for in-house and private practice lawyers advising clients in this area and for compliance officers or Board members, who post Bribery Act are ever more likely to be engaged with the difficult practical issues the new legislation gives rise to.
