If you conduct business on either side of the Atlantic you will be affected by the toughest global compliance enforcement standards in the world – The UK Bribery and US Foreign Corrupt Practices Acts.   

The UK Government is enforcing stringent new legislative anti-bribery standards and you need to be prepared.  Experts from both sides of the pond will join the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 23 from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. at the offices of Duane Morris LLP to tell us what’s new and how to avoid up to 10 years in a British jail or 5 years in a local one!

The new legislation changes the way we do business.  In the UK private to private bribery will now be illegal, corporate hospitality will be regulated and it can be an offence to fail to take adequate measures to stamp out corruption.  Our session will give practical tips for US businesses doing business at home and in Europe.   As fresh compliance measures are being enforced don’t let the whistle blowers catch you for something you did not even know was illegal.
