Aziz Rahman and Joshua Ray provide expert insight chapter for the 2022 International Legal Guide - Corporate Investigations

Authors: Azizur Rahman, Joshua L. Ray  5 January 2022

Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman and Joshua Ray have again written one of the expert analysis chapters for the International Comparative Legal Guide - Corporate Investigations.

Aziz, the firm’s founder and Senior Partner, and Joshua Ray, who is a Legal Director, are co-authors of the chapter “Bribery and Corruption: Investigations and Negotiations Across Jurisdictions’’ in the Guide’s just-published 2022 edition. Rahman Ravelli has been asked to provide a key chapter for the Guide for five years running.

Aziz and Josh’s chapter details existing bribery and corruption legislation and gives advice to companies that are being investigated and those that are keen to ensure they do nothing to prompt an investigation. They assess the effect of the UK’s Bribery Act and analyse some of the most significant recent cases. They also detail factors that affect how the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) operates, such as its powers under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act, the advice it gives to companies looking to co-operate with it and its guidance on corporate compliance programmes.

The importance of taking the right approach to negotiations, multilateral development banks’ powers of investigation and developments in US anti-corruption enforcement are also explained in the chapter.

Aziz Rahman said: “As in previous years, Rahman Ravelli was delighted to be asked to write a chapter for the Guide. We have once again provided a chapter that will be of use to those who need advice and information when it comes to any aspect of bribery and corruption investigations.’’
