The Bribery Act reforms the criminal law to provide a new, modern and comprehensive scheme of bribery offences that will enable courts and prosecutors to respond more effectively to bribery at home or abroad.

This new book summarises and interprets the new law of bribery covering the general bribery offence, foreign public offences and the specific corporate offence designed to make companies and other corporate bodies responsible for bribery committed on behalf of a company.

In addition the book provides practical guidance on setting up compliance procedures in line with the new Act and explains the impact of the new legislation through worked scenarios.
