    Be careful who you associate yourself with. Don't ruin your own reputation by being affiliate with a sexual deviant like Jim Mcgrath.

  7. Bruce W Bean, MSU Prof., Global Corporate Law says:

    Strict criminal liability for a non-UK company based upon an act far from England by a non-employee.

    I guess no one can believe this will actually happen. But the prosecutors who want Big Law jobs will make certain that this happens.

    Client beware!!

    See, now that's just unfair, Professor Bean seems to believe that DOJ attorneys are motivated in their enforcement decisions by the possibility of jobs in the future. I was an attorney with the SEC, and for all its faults, and I believe this of DOJ attorneys also, our decisions were based on the best interests of US investors. We served the public, in other words.

    And what companies are being held responsble for is bribery. And I think we can all agree that bribery is bad.

    As for the UK Bribery Act, I actually advocate a wait-and-see approach. I wouldn't go changing my program dramatically if I were comfortable with the program generally. I might add some training.

    As for what's going to happen on July 1? I think nothing at all. I would suspect, though, that by the end of the year the SFO brings their first case.

    It's quite simple, don't pay bribes in any way, shape or form. How hard can it possibly be? Instead, lets promote social injustice and inequality, global poverty, a growing uneducated population in countries like Indonesia and an ever widening gap between the poor, underprivileged persons of all nations who are the true victims of corruption. Corruption must be stopped and if it tales over-arching, extra-teritorial laws to achieve that, so be it. July 1st has parallels to New Years Eve 1999 when everybody thought planes were going to fall out of the sky and their laptops wouldn't start, mine did. Lets all grow up and get a compliance programme in place and if you already have, well keep going, because you shouldn't be paying bribes, get with the programme.
