Anti-bribery and corruption

Whatever sector your business operates in, you operate in a global environment of increased enforcement against corruption and increasing compliance expectations.

Our specialist team will help you understand and operate within the UK Bribery Act 2010 (and international legislation) to efficiently manage complex investigative work, criminal proceedings and implement practical compliance enhancements.

Our specialist team of lawyers and consultants advise on regulation, business and financial crime and compliance both contentious and non-contentious matters-  and are regularly involved in highly complex matters, using the latest technology to create maximum efficiency.

Our clients draw on RPC team members who have worked for prosecutors (including the Serious Fraud Office, Financial Conduct Authority and Criminal Prosecution Service) and partners who have lead in-house financial crime teams, to guide them through corruption issues.

Recent experience includes matters in energy, construction, manufacturing, defence, shipping, telecoms, investment banking, banking and insurance. We also continuously support our clients and their C-Suites by helping them to identify risks and legislative changes well in advance and by convening events including round-table discussions.

Sam Tate leads this area and is a co-author of “Bribery: A Compliance Handbook” (Bloomsbury, June 2014), described by Keir Starmer KCB QC (ex-Director of Public Prosecutions) as “a first rate guide for all legal practitioners called upon to advise on any issue concerning bribery”.
