Make anti-bribery and corruption your priority
18 January 2017
Here is our Global bribery and corruption review 2016 — your guide to developments in anti-bribery and corruption regulation and enforcement. In it we review events, examine trends, draw on our work with clients like you, and project what might happen in 2017.

Topics we cover:
- In the United States, coordinated, cross-border, corporate enforcement actions look set to rise with, among other measures, the FBI’s creating three dedicated FCPA investigative teams.
- In the United Kingdom, mixed messages are circling what the SFO and the English courts expect in terms of cooperation, especially around the issue of privilege.
- In Latin America, governmental bodies have begun to improve anticorruption enforcement. We look at developments in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
- Cross-border investigations are fast becoming commonplace for global companies. If mishandled, these can create conflicting obligations.
- In Asia Pacific, anti-bribery and corruption laws vary by jurisdiction, as do the attitudes of employees, regulators, and enforcement agencies toward corruption. We look at developments in Australia, China, and South East Asia.
- Africa has an embedded bribery and corruption problem as well as other barriers to doing business. But it has reached a turning point: detection and enforcement are on the agenda.
- Compliance isn’t yet the priority it should be. Drawing on our global study Steering the Course, we offer a glimpse of compliance in the real world.
Because circumstances are fast changing, the review can only guide you to a point. But we’re on hand with practical advice for when you need to know more.
