Although the Bribery Act 2010 repeals all previous anti-corruption law, the previous offences will remain relevant for any conduct that may have occurred prior to 1 July 2011.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers represented a leading international construction company in relation to issues arising from the construction of a world acclaimed building. We undertook an internal investigation both in the UK and overseas the findings of which were presented to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO).
This work enabled us to secure the first ever Civil Recovery settlement which ensured that neither the company nor any individual was prosecuted.
This settlement was used as a template to resolve a number of other corporate investigations, and has also informed the framework of the Deferred Prosecution Agreement system that will come into force in 2014.
Our experience allows us to provide almost unrivalled expertise to both individual and corporate clients and so to seek the optimum possible outcome on their behalf.
