Cozen O’Connor: Urgent Action Required To Ensure Compliance With The UK Bribery Act [Lexology]

Urgent Action Required To Ensure Compliance With The UK Bribery Act [Lexology]

The UK Bribery Act, which became law on April 8, 2010 and which will come into force later this year, has important implications for U.S. companies that carry on business, however modest, in the UK. In particular, the Act’s expansive jurisdiction over non-UK companies in matters of private commercial bribery, and the lack of an exception for ''facilitating payments,'' may require U.S. companies to review and modify their anti-corruption compliance programs to conform to the new law.
