Seminar: Foreign bribery and corruption

A fast-changing international legal landscape


The British High Commission, Transparency International Australia and UK Trade & Investment present a short, intensive and FREE update on Australian, UK and international legal developments to counter bribery and corruption.

These seminars are a must for legal and accounting professionals, corporate executives responsible for compliance, and SMEs with any level of international business dealings. Understanding of the growing legal and reputation risks in this field is essential.

  • Update on the UK Bribery Act: A new focus on enforcement
  • Obligations for UK companies
  • Obligations for any organisation with UK operations/connections
  • Implications for Australian companies of offshore risks
  • Update on Australia’s National Anti-Corruption Plan
  • Australia’s facilitation payments defence unmasked
  • New UK Standard on foreign bribery-best practice


 Seminar speakers are all expert practitioners in the field:

Gerard Forlin, QC         Cornerstone Barristers, London; Denman Chambers, Sydney; Maxwell   Chambers, Singapore

Michael Ahrens           CEO, Transparency International Australia

Frank O'Toole               Lead Forensic Partner NSW, Deloitte Touchue Tohmatsu
