The Bribery Act 2010 reforms the law of corruption, modernizing the existing law and creating new offences targeted at both individuals and businesses. It enables increased prosecution of businesses operating overseas, whether through subsidiaries, joint ventures, or direct market access, and simplifies and clarifies existing laws, making UK law compliant with international instruments.

The Act introduces a controversial new corporate offence, enabling prosecution of companies associated with the individual or business accused of corruption. It also introduces the defence of adequate provisions for companies accused of the corporate offence.

This new Blackstone's Guide to the Bribery Act 2010 combines the full text of the Act and extracts of related relevant legislation with an expert narrative. It brings practitioners up-to-date with this long-awaited piece of legislation.

Features:
  • Clearly explains the new provisions in the Bribery Act, including the core bribery offences, defences, facilitation payments and issues of jurisdiction
  • Contains coverage of the new corporate offences, including the defence of adequate provisions
  • An excellent quick reference tool, logically organized and following the structure of the Act
  • Includes the full text of the Act
