The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the scope, extent and effects of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself.They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes. The Bribery Act 2010 reforms the law of corruption, currently covered by the common law and a number of statutes dating to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Act modernizes the existing law and creates new offences and investigative powers - targeted at both individuals and businesses,particularly those operating in sectors most often associated with corruption of public officials (such as defence, construction, healthcare, and the extractive industries). It is also intended to enable increased prosecution of businesses operating overseas, whether through subsidiaries, jointventures, or direct market access. It also simplifies and clarifies existing laws, and makes UK law compliant with international instruments.This newBlackstone's Guide combines the full text of the Act and extracts of related relevant legislation with an expert narrative. It brings practitioners up-to-date with this complex piece of drafting. Presented in a straightforward layout, it enables ease of use as a reference source.
Monty Raphael is Special Counsel at Peters and Peters, a leading white collar law firm (until 2005 he was Senior Partner and then head of the Fraud and Regulatory team). He has made a particular speciality of corruption, civil and criminal fraud and anti-money laundering law (domestic and international).
