Anti-Bribery Laws in Common Law Jurisdictions provides a comprehensive analysis of the foreign bribery laws and of related laws and regulations in key common law jurisdictions. This book extensively addresses the official guidance associated with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act, and explains the related legal obligations that apply to record-keeping practices and maintaining adequate internal controls. Foreign bribery legislation in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and South Africa are also extensively addressed.
This book published by Oxford University Press also closely focuses on laws that may expose an individual or entity to private or commercial bribery in foreign settings, as well as to the application of laws relating to money laundering, accounting, and record-keeping practices to situations involving foreign bribery. Throughout, special attention is given to explaining the criteria used in each jurisdiction to establish liability on the part of an entity or organization for foreign bribery.
