Global Bribery and Corruption Review 2013
In this latest issue, we review the continued global effort to combat bribery and corruption in 2013. In the United States, reaffirming the government’s war against global corruption, Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman declared, “Fighting global corruption is, and always will be, a core priority of the Department of Justice.” We survey Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement actions to help you understand current trends in order to avoid or minimize their risk. We also update you on two recent cases that have an important impact on foreign nationals and their susceptibility to U.S. jurisdiction.
We look at developments in the United Kingdom. Despite some tough setbacks for anti-corruption enforcement in 2013, there are signs that the UK authorities will embark in 2014 with a more clearly defined mission and with the prospect of new tools with which to achieve it. We spotlight developments in two key countries, Brazil and China, and take you on a worldwide tour of bribery and corruption enforcement in our 2013 developments across the globe.
Finally, Latin America is a growing hotspot for business, and we offer some guidance for those doing business in the area on how to use your contract drafting to provide protection against corruption.
We will very soon be holding a live webcast of the trends and developments discussed in this review, please contact Marissa.Burcham@hoganlovells.com if you would like to attend.
