View Client Update
The Bribery Act comes into force tomorrow, 1 July, 2011.
Commercial organisations with business in the UK will be liable for bribery by "associated persons", unless they can prove they have “adequate procedures” in place to prevent bribery.
The Serious Fraud Office, the agency charged with enforcing and prosecuting the Act, is expected to adopt a common sense approach to the Act's interpretation and enforcement.
