3VB’s Fraud Breakfast Forum: Bribery in the modern age

Members of 3VB’s Civil Fraud Team are proud to present a series of morning talks in a digestible form.

In the eighth of this series, Hodge Malek QC and Charlotte Eborall will look at how bribery works in practice and the challenges faced in dealing with it. This session will cover how benefits are paid, the steps taken to avoid prosecution and corruption abroad involving UK entities. The Court of Appeal’s recent decision in Wood v Commercial First Business Limited [2021] EWCA Civ 471 will be discussed, which considers whether a fiduciary duty is a necessary pre-condition to a claim for undisclosed commission, what is a half secret commission and the remedies available in such claims.
