The director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), David Green QC, has proposed a number of changes to the UK Bribery Act, which, if enacted, could make it easier for the SFO to prosecute corporations under the Act. Furthermore, the Home Office has is considering financially incentivising whistleblowers in cases of fraud, bribery and corruption. If this is implemented it will represent a significant development in the discovery and enforcement of fraud, bribery and corruption offences in the UK.
FW spoke to Satnam Tumani, a partner at Kirkland & Ellis International, Siobhain Egan, a director at Lewis Nedas Law, and Sam Eastwood, a partner at Norton Rose Fulbright, about the proposed changes.
