Eoin O'Shea explains the 2010 Bribery Act in detail and provides practical guidance on critical issues for businesses
"This is a very comprehensive and welcome book and Practical Guide on an important new statute ... this is a very complete guide which I highly recommend"... more
"Eoin O'Shea has produced an excellent primer on the Act, and about much more than the Act. He shows how it fits in with other relevant civil and criminal legislation. He brings out clearly how and why those who would condone bribery, as some nationally-known commentators have, are at best ill-informed, at worst cynical and self-serving.
Eoin demolishes the Government's notion that a UK stock exchange listing will not in itself bring a company under the provisions of the Act, and is equally forthright in assessing that carrying out due diligence only on your immediate sub-contractors is unlikely to be seen by a court as "adequate"!
Not surprisingly, he is less strong on the due diligence needed in foreign markets, and on the sources of help that are available to assist this. Nevertheless, this is a first-class book that will be a valuable resource for anyone concerned with the application of the Bribery Act"
"a useful guide ... takes a look at the defence and looks at its territorial application ... provisions are dissected with hypothetical examples ...In a world where there is so much misreporting of the Bribery Act the book is a welcome addition ... for those responsible for compliance and putting in place adequate procedures to prevent bribery the book will be a valuable reference work"... more
"erudite and readable book...If you're a practitioner in this field, the practical approach taken by this guide will familiarise you with this important new legislation and its many implications."... more
