The coming paradigm shift in settling foreign bribery cases

The coming paradigm shift in settling foreign bribery cases

A webinar presented by the IBA Anti-Corruption Committee, supported by the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee

23 SEPT 2020 1500 – 1600 BST

In 2018 the IBA published a global study showing that foreign bribery cases are usually terminated before a full trial and verdict are concluded. The practice of settling rather than trying cases to a conclusion is widespread, but varied, non-transparent and unpredictable. Lawyers and corporations have tried for years to address this. Now the OECD Working Group on Bribery, a group of justice ministry officials from 44 countries, proposes to do just that.

This webinar will address the Working Group's planned guidelines for the settlement of international bribery cases. Panellists will address: 

  • The current international bribery enforcement landscape
  • The Working Group on Bribery's agenda
  • The proposed new guidelines for national prosecution services
  • What this means for national practice and law
  • What IBA members can do now
  • What corporations and lawyers should do to prepare for these changes
