The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the scope, extent and effects of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes. The Bribery Act 2010 reforms the law of corruption, modernizing the existing law and creating new offences targeted at both individuals and businesses. It enables increased prosecution of businesses operating overseas, whether through subsidiaries, joint ventures, or direct market access, and simplifies and clarifies existing laws, making UK law compliant with international instruments. The Act introduces a controversial new corporate offence, enabling prosecution of companies associated with the individual or business accused of corruption. It also introduces the defence of "adequate provisions" for companies accused of the corporate offence. This new Blackstone's Guide combines the full text of the Act and extracts of related relevant legislation with an expert narrative. It brings practitioners up-to-date with this long-awaited piece of legislation.
