We are pleased to announce our firm’s participation in the updated Lex Mundi Global Anti-Corruption Compliance Guide which summarizes regulatory regimes in more than 70 jurisdictions across the globe.
The guide is an interactive tool built to help in-house counsel and corporate legal teams understand how to apply anti-corruption laws in the jurisdictions in which they operate and to guide them in the conduct of their business – all in a side-by-side customized report.
There has been a significant increase over the past decade in the implementation and enforcement of anti-corruption legislation around the world. Whether your team is implementing a company-wide anti-corruption compliance code or advising management on a proposed overseas investment, it is imperative that legal functions within organizations understand how relevant anti-corruption laws apply to and inform the way in which they conduct their business.
Specific questions and topics addressed in the guide include:
• What is the key anti-bribery and corruption legislation?
• Has there been a specific anti-bribery and corruption law enacted in the last ten years?
• Is requesting or accepting a bribe prohibited by the legislation?
• Is there criminal liability for corporate entities who have either paid or accepted a bribe payment?
