UK Bribery Act and Global Anti-Corruption Compliance and Enforcement Full Day Workshop

October 13, 2010
Arnold & Porter (UK) LLP
Tower 42 25 Old Broad St
London EC2N 1HQ

Please join us in our London office for a day of discussion and presentations on the effects of the new UK Bribery Act 2010, its impact on companies doing business in the UK, the new "adequate procedures" requirement and related global anti-corruption compliance and enforcement issues. Our panel of experienced UK and US speakers will examine how to manage the impact of this far reaching piece of legislation. In addition to giving a practical overview of the scope of the new offences and potential liability, the workshop will provide guidance on:

  • What anti-corruption systems and controls companies will be expected to have, as well as how best to design and implement those procedures (both internally and at third parties)
  • Practical pitfalls in running global anti-corruption policies and how to avoid them
  • Vetting of business partners and how to limit increasing liability for the acts of third parties
  • Dealing with gifts and hospitality and managing the expectations of your business
  • Current anti-corruption enforcement trends, international co-operation, and the next likely "hot topics"
  • Managing the potential liability of your senior managers, employment law traps for the unwary, and practical tips for carrying out investigations and dealing with potential issues
  • Self-reporting and the increasing overlap between corruption and liability for money laundering and other crimes
  • The impact of the Bribery Act on mergers and acquisitions, liability to stakeholders, and the whistleblowing provisions of Dodd Frank
