Louise Delahunty and Juan Rodriguez Co-Author Article on U.K. Bribery ActOctober 27, 2011
Ms. Delahunty and Mr. Rodriguez co-authored an article featured in Legal Week on October 27 titled, “Cartels and Corruption: No Stone Should Be Left Unturned.” The article discussed how, with the U.K. Bribery Act now in full effect, corporations should begin to take a holistic, global approach towards compliance and risk management, particularly with respect to the increasingly overlapping areas of competition and anti-bribery regulation. Citing several companies’ recent settlements of such “dual-infringement” investigations, Ms. Delahunty and Mr. Rodriguez highlighted the importance of thorough corporate compliance and education programs as an effective means of dealing with multi-jurisdictional investigations, avoiding heavy fines and legal costs, and obtaining more favorable settlements.
