Aziz Rahman has written one of the expert insight chapters for the 2024 International Comparative Legal Guide - Corporate Investigations.
The recently-published 2024 edition of the guidebook features Aziz’s “Bribery and Corruption: Investigations and Negotiations Across Jurisdictions’’ as one of the five leading analysis chapters. It is the seventh year running that Rahman Ravelli has written a chapter for the Guide.
Aziz’s chapter details the main aspects of bribery and corruption investigations, including how they are conducted and the relevant legislation. He explains the approach taken by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office; including the powers it has at its disposal and the advice it has issued about cooperating with it. The chapter also outlines the factors that can be important when negotiating with an investigating authority.
The effect of the UK’s Bribery Act, some of the most legally significant cases and the use of deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs) here and abroad are also covered by the chapter, as are sanctions, multilateral development bank investigations and anti-corruption enforcement by US regulators.
The chapter can be viewed here.
