How do I defend my business against corruption charges?

Modern legislation, including the Bribery Act 2010, is specifically drafted to make it easier to prosecute individuals and companies accused of corrupt business practices. This and related laws set out strict liabilities for any business that fails to prevent bribes being made, even without their knowledge and in overseas territories where certain practices may be part and parcel of the business landscape.

In the first instance, we’re here to help you comply fully with the Bribery Act 2010, and related laws. We do this by assisting with the creation of bespoke compliance packages and training programmes to help prevent the circumstances occurring that could lead to criminal charges in the first place.

To find out more about staying compliant with the Bribery Act 2010 and all related laws, call us on 0161 830 9632 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or contact us and we’ll call you.
