Spotlight on the EU and UK: Exploring the Future of Anti-Corruption Enforcement Under the UK Bribery Act

Spotlight on the EU and UK: Exploring the Future of Anti-Corruption Enforcement Under the UK Bribery Act

Tuesday, 27 September 2022 | 10:00 AM ET (2:00 PM GMT)

A year’s long effort on the part of the Government to respond to outcries to reform bribery, the UK Bribery Act (UKBA) has now been in effect for more than a decade. Introducing new offences for both “active” and “passive” bribery, implementing key changes to how corporate liability for corruption is established, as well as the later introduction of the deferred prosecution (DPA), the UKBA sought to establish itself as the benchmark standard for corruption legislation in Europe and abroad. During this session hear from expert counsel at TRACE’s Partner Firm for England and Wales, Addleshaw Goddard LLP, as they look back over the past decade (considering the impact of Brexit) to address how the Act has impacted global and local business and enforcement, highlighting key takeaways from recently released guidance from the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) as well as cooperation between and among both local and foreign agencies, specifically in the area of bribery and corruption.
