The repercussions of bribery and corruption incidents, for both individuals and corporations, have dramatically increased over recent years. Government agencies are vigorously enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act across jurisdictional boundaries. While neither of these regulations are new, the way regulators are enforcing them has changed, and corporations that misunderstand their obligations are no longer being given the benefit of the doubt.
