About The UK Anti-Bribery Handbook

The UK Anti-Bribery Handbook (previously titled: Bribery: A Compliance Handbook) This handbook is a reference point for those concerned with the 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, covering each of the principle offences and considers some case studies and issues that affect particular sectors. The emphasis is very much on preventative matters rather than defending subsequent prosecutions and as such appeals not just to lawyers, but to compliance officers, non-executive directors and others who are required to be aware of the provisions. The key is to avoid liability.

A practical guide to corrupt practices, the work considers the safeguards and practical measures that organisations should put in place to prevent prosecution or regulatory action. It is as such 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 legislation and developments since enactment give rise to.

The new edition focuses on:

- Deferred Prosecution Agreements and how they have been applied
- A review of the new case law under the Bribery Act itself Compliance in a digital remote world, post COVID - how compliance functions are going need to change in the “new normal”

Sir Keir Starmer, in the Foreword to the 1st edition, highlighted that:
'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 to the authorities in the UK, and off-the-shelf polices to help corporate bodies navigate their way through theses often difficult waters…The game has changed and those who ignore the practical advice offered in this book do so at their own peril'.
