Bribery Act

Bribery Act Legal Advice and Support

The Bribery Act came into force in 2011. It created new criminal offences, including the failure to prevent bribery. If one of your project partners bribes a foreign official, that could constitute an offence by you, even if you were unaware of it happening and did not sanction it.

In order to minimise risks when operating internationally, it is crucial to make clear that bribery is absolutely prohibited. Importantly, the Bribery Act requires not only that you have proper policies and procedures, but that you train your employees and enforce those policies and procedures. We can provide policies, procedures, contracts and training that will help avoid you being unwittingly drawn within the scope of the Bribery Act.


For specialist legal advice and support on international education projects, please contact Doug Locke on 0117 314 5602.

Impressive and practical in their advice and has strong commercial awareness.
