The implementation of the Bribery Act 2010 introduced a whole new area of criminal law resulting in a new wave of recent prosecutions for bribery offences that previously did not exist.
Normally a prosecution will be against a company if it can be shown that an employee of that company has committed an act of bribery and that the company did not have in place adequate procedures to prevent this happening.
Should a corporate client of ours face a prosecution under the Bribery Act it will be essential to show that the company had done everything that could reasonably be expected to prevent any such offences of bribery taking place.
The penalties under this prosecution can range from a fine or imprisonment for an individual or significant financial penalties against corporate defendants. There can also be further wide range of penalties which can seriously affect that company’s ability to trade in the future.
We fully appreciate the importance of any bribery or corruption prosecution against an individual or corporate client. If we are instructed to defend any client facing such a prosecution our services will be specifically tailored to the individual or corporate clients requirements. Should it be necessary to instruct a Barrister we have direct access to Barristers throughout the country who are highly specialised in dealing with this field of the criminal law.
