Fulbright’s TransAtlantic Team Collaborates On Serious Economic Crime Book
The Government Investigations practices of the London and Washington, D.C. offices of the Firm have come together to collaborate in writing a chapter for "Serious Economic Crime: A boardroom guide to prevention and compliance", a book recently published in association the UK's Serious Fraud Office ("SFO").
The book includes national and global perspectives from significant government and non-governmental organisation such as the SFO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Transparency International and the World Bank Group. Fulbright's chapter, "US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act versus the UK Bribery Act: a perspective from both sides of the Pond", sits alongside chapters provided by leading international law, accountancy and consultancy firms. A copy of Fulbright's chapter is available by clicking here.
To round off a great opportunity for the London office and the Firm, on 30 November 2011 over 400 guests, including a number of clients and friends of Fulbright, attended the launch of the book at a reception in the Great Hall of Lincoln's Inn, London. Richard Alderman, director of the SFO, gave a welcome address to guests in which he thanked participating firms for their contribution to what he considers to be an important publication.
