Anti-Bribery & Corruption

We consider that for law firms, anti-bribery and corruption issues forms part of the larger financial crime risk that firms need to understand and mitigate. The risks need to be considered in relation to client related issues; for example where as a result of dealing with a matter, a lawyer learns that a bribe has been paid to or by the client. An understanding of industry and jurisdiction risk is essential. The firm’s own activities also need to be considered; for example acquiring premises and entering into contracts in higher risk jurisdictions.

  • We advise on issues arising from the Bribery Act 2010, including drafting of policies and procedures for law firms in accordance with section 9 of the Bribery Act 2010 which firms can put into place to prevent persons associated with them from bribing.
  • We can help a firm draw up or update its risk assessment.
  • We also deliver training on anti-bribery and corruption as part of the wider understanding of financial crime risk or stand alone.
