UK Bribery Act and its implementation in Russia

The UK Bribery Act that comes into force 1 July 2011 may indeed be considered the strictest anti-corruption law in Europe. The new law will be especially important for Russia, where corruption is an ongoing issue and fighting it has not always been successful. Because of the laws extraterritorial application, all foreign companies that conduct business in the United Kingdom will be affected, irrespective of where they are incorporated.

Key issues to be discussed:

— UK Bribery Act: what does it mean for British, foreign and Russian companies operating in Russia?

— The implementation of internal compliance systems: CMS experience and best practices

— How to detect corruption schemes in Russia and minimise your exposure?

— Internal Investigation
