Tuesday’s seminar on corruption and bribery in Delhi raised important issues on the wide-ranging repercussions of the UK Bribery Act for companies in India. The session is now coming to Mumbai this Friday with knowledge partner AZB & Partners providing local insight.

UK national barristers’ chambers No5, global chartered accountants BDO, construction industry consultancy Gleeds and others discussed the application of the UK Bribery Act 2010 and protective measures Indian companies with business interests in the UK should be implementing to stay safe.

Global companies and Indian companies with a business presence in the UK could be held liable for corrupt acts, bribery or facilitation payments committed by its officers or even third party agents engaged by the company in India.

The panel was peppered with incisive questions by the assembled GCs, in-house counsel and lawyers, including on what and when gifting will be deemed “excessive” within Indian or UK cultural contexts, what “adequate procedures” will be needed to fall within safe harbours, and liability for agents’ actions.

The Mumbai event this Friday, 21st October, promises the same high level of debate and insight with AZB & Partners as knowledge partner, co-organised by Legally India. Event starts at 630pm at Indian Merchants Chambers in Churchgate.
