From being a minority interest of NGOs and niche law firms, corruption has grown into a subject which is rarely out of the media and which corporate lawyers and specialist consultants worldwide have seen as a new business opportunity. Bribery: Law and Practice from Monty Raphael QC, one of themost respected lawyers in this field, offers a comprehensive, authoritative overview of this increasingly significant area of law that updates and expands on his earlier Blackstone's Guide to the Bribery Act 2010. In the years since the Bribery Act came into force there have been a great many developments in legislation, regulation, compliance, and forensic investigation which are fully covered in this volume, including the introduction of Deferred Prosecution Agreements in the Crime and Courts Bill 2013 andthe issuance of new guidance on business expenditure, facilitation payments, and self-reporting, among others, by the Serious Fraud Office, the Ministry of Justice, the Financial Conduct Authority, Transparency International, and the International Chamber of Commerce.
