Bribery and Corruption

With the Bribery Act 2010 granting significant jurisdiction to UK law enforcement agencies for prosecuting offenses within and beyond the UK borders, our team of seasoned lawyers, drawing on their extensive expertise gained from handling numerous allegations, including the largest bribery case to date, establishes XT 24 as a primary resource for individuals or companies facing suspicion.

Bribery and Corruption

While allegations of bribery and corruption may be concentrated within the UK, it is more likely that such allegations span multiple jurisdictions, depending on the areas where business has been conducted. Consequently, international investigative agencies play an increasingly crucial role, and our global experience in dealing with agencies ensures an informed and tailored approach in every case.

Our team has successfully navigated a range of allegations in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, accumulating extensive knowledge and understanding of global investigation procedures.

We offer advice across various sectors, including but not limited to medical, energy, oil and gas, construction, and engineering.

With the introduction of a failure-to-prevent provision under s7 of the Bribery Act, imposing quasi-strict liability on corporations, companies must fully comprehend the implications. Consideration of other legislative and regulatory frameworks, such as FCA reporting requirements, is crucial, and comprehensive compliance procedures are highly recommended.

Our team, now part of XT 24, has a profound understanding of the interplay between the Bribery Act 2010 and Deferred Prosecution Agreements (“DPA”), having been pioneers in leading cases in this field.

XT 24 takes pride in its reputation in this specialized area of law. For any queries or to learn more about XT 24 and its Criminal Litigation, Investigations, and Regulatory services, please contact a member of the team who will be able to assist.
