Anti-Bribery & Corruption
The Bribery Act 2010 is one of the most radical and far-reaching pieces of UK legislation in modern times and it poses significant operational and management issues for organisations based or operating in the UK, as well as UK organisations operating overseas. Many organisations are finding that they have had to closely re-evaluate how they obtain business, engage with suppliers, promote sales to customers, appoint agents and distributers, undertake business acquisitions and structure joint ventures to avoid the potential risks of being engaged directly or indirectly in acts of bribery.
At Walker Morris we have a specialist and dedicated Anti-Bribery & Corruption Team with experience in advising both UK-based and overseas organisations on all aspects of the increasing challenges currently faced by them in relation to risk assessment, policy drafting, compliance, day to day operational support, audits, strategic transactional support, crisis management, investigations, prosecutions, compensation claims and training.
We work closely with our Employment Team on related issues involving disciplinary measures and with our Corporate Team on corporate governance so as to offer our clients seamless and holistic solutions and our relationships with key independent overseas law firms enable us also to provide a service which encompasses local law issues around the globe, wherever our clients’ business interests take them.
