Anti-Bribery and Corruption Law in International Business


This LibGuide is based extensively on the Anti-Bribery Law in International Business LibGuide by Andrew Winston, University of Richmond Law School Library (linked below).

"Bribery and corruption is a growing concern for businesses in all sectors and jurisdictions, although some involve greater inherent risks than others.  Corruption is a problem not only from an ethical and competition-distorting perspective, but also because of the risk it creates to the reputation of affected businesses and the potential financial implications of a conviction.

Despite the increasingly open and international marketplace, there is no international anti-corruption law or standard.  The relevant laws in different jurisdictions are complex and diverse - the acts triggering offences in each state are sometimes very different; the focus is not the same; corporates are not always exposed to liability; and the penalties vary dramatically from state to state."
