Rahman Ravelli’s senior partner and founder Aziz Rahman has again written one of the expert insight chapters for the International Comparative Legal Guide - Corporate Investigations.
His chapter, “Bribery and Corruption: Investigations and Negotiations Across Jurisdictions’’, features in the just-published 2023 edition of the Guide. It is the sixth consecutive year that Rahman Ravelli has provided a chapter for the Guide.
Aziz’s chapter explains existing bribery and corruption legislation. It also offers advice to those who are under investigation or believe they may be in the future.
The chapter assesses the impact of the UK’s Bribery Act and details some of the most significant cases. It also outlines the way the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) works; including the powers it has under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act regarding interviews and documentation and the advice it has issued on co-operating with it.
The use of deferred prosecution agreements in the UK and abroad, sanctions, multilateral development bank investigations and anti-corruption enforcement by US regulators are also examined in the chapter.
The chapter can be viewed here.
