Download publication

From football in Switzerland to banks in France to state-owned oil companies in Brazil to airlines in Asia – it seems there is not a corner of the global that bribery and corruption does not touch. It has been an unprecedented few years in terms of public awareness and publicity of corruption and many jurisdictions are strengthening their laws and enforcement efforts in order to combat unethical behaviours.

It is against this backdrop that we are delighted to announce the publication of the fifth edition of the CMS Guide to Anti-Bribery and Corruption Laws. The Guide covers more jurisdictions than ever before and now includes an overview of the anti-corruption laws in 42 countries across the world (including the BRIC nations, Asia, the Middle East and South America). Building on earlier editions, for the first time, the Guide includes overviews for Australia, Chile, Columbia, Monaco, Montenegro, Oman, Peru and Saudi Arabia, in addition to updates from countries across Europe and Asia, making it a valuable guide for those looking to understand the anti-bribery and corruption legislative landscape in some of the key international jurisdictions.

The CMS ABC Guide provides for each jurisdiction an overview of the relevant bribery and corruption offences, in addition to details of who can be held criminally liable and under what circumstances, the penalties and defences. It also includes key contacts for our specialist lawyers and key contributors from around the world.
