Robert Rhodes QC on Bribery & Corruption at COMBAR North American Meeting
Outer Temple Chambers barristers recently participated in the 2016 COMBAR North American Meeting, which was held in Venice, Italy, from Thursday 31 March to Friday 1 April 2016.
Robert Rhodes QC was part of the “Bribery & Corruption” panel session attended by the Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas where Robert spoke about “adequate procedures” under the Bribery Act 2010.
He emphasised that the important point of the session was to highlight that the detailed provisions of the UK Bribery Act cover any business that is incorporated in the UK or that carries on business in the UK, even if it is incorporated abroad.
Robert also demonstrated that it is absolutely vital that all such businesses have an understanding of their potential exposure to criminal liability under the Bribery Act.
His presentation was subsequently described by the chairman of the panel session as “a simply superb overview of the Bribery Act”.
