Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption

The number of enforcement actions, the number of jurisdictions within which enforcement actions have been brought and the size and nature of fines and penalties arising from anti-corruption legislations, have all increased significantly over the last few years. With far reaching legislations like the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), UK Bribery Act etc., and authorities across different jurisdictions such as the Department of Justice (DOJ), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) etc. increasingly sharing information and bringing joint actions – now more than ever, managing the risk of corruption has become a global rather than a country specific issue. Corporate entities therefore need to regularly assess the adequacy and scope of their anti-corruption programmes in order to ensure their continued effectiveness.
