CMS Guide to Anti-Bribery and Corruption - 4th Edition

15 April 2016 Download PDF

CMS is delighted to send you the 4th edition of our CMS Guide to Anti-Bribery & Corruption. The Guide summarises the main aspects of anti-corruption laws applicable in 34 countries by answering the following key questions:

  • What are the key offences?
  • Who can be liable and when?
  • What are the penalties?
  • What are the defences?

The global anti-corruption landscape has seen major changes since we published the last edition in 2014. Some jurisdictions have completely overhauled their laws. Many have strengthened and extended the reach of their regimes, for example by introducing stiffer penalties for corruption offences.

The 4th edition not only captures legislative changes in the original 26 countries covered by the previous edition, but also includes new contributions from Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia – courtesy of Rajah & Tann Asia), the Middle East (the UAE and Lebanon) and South America (Mexico). This edition also includes coverage of Turkey.

Countries covered in the guide: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom.

We hope that you find the new version of the Guide useful. If you would like us to send you a hard copy of the Guide, please contact Omar Qureshi.
