The law and practice relating to corruption and the misuse of public office is of considerable topical interest. The legislation in this area has developed over recent years, with the implementation of statutes such as the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 and the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. These key pieces of legislation extend UK jurisdiction to corruption offences committed abroad by UK nationals and incorporated bodies, and strengthen the mechanisms to recover assets and wealth obtained as a result of unlawful activity.

This book provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the law relating to corruption as it has been shaped over recent years. Written by leading practitioners with extensive experience of handling both the civil and criminal aspects of corruption cases, the book provides a clear exposition of the current law. It examines the legal and practical issues relating to the investigation and prosecution of corruption cases and includes specialist coverage of issues such as whistleblowing, and the recovery and repatriation of assets.

Corruption cases often span jurisdictions. This book enables practitioners to handle any aspect of a corruption case by providing them with detailed analysis of the international efforts to combat corruption, and the legal developments taking place in key jurisdictions and regions covered by UN, EU, OECD, and Commonwealth initiatives.
