Mark Rainsford QC to Speak at DLA Piper Event in Leeds and Sheffield

Mark Rainsford QC will speak alongside Paul Burnley, a partner at DLA Piper, on the implications of the Bribery Act 2010 in Leeds on 19 October 2010 and Sheffield on 21 October 2010.

In introducing the event, DLA Piper say: "In some eyes the Bribery Act 2010 ushers in much needed reform in the UK. Not only is it seen as an important step in fighting bribery and corruption, when enacted in April next year, it will set new requirements for Companies.

The breathing space given by the new Government in delaying the implementation of the Act is for companies to get their house in order. A recent survey conducted by DLA Piper revealed that there are many companies out there that are not fully prepared for the introduction of the Bribery Act, and some who do not yet acknowledge that this legislation is of relevance to the way they do business."

This practical seminar sets out the new requirements expected and how to meet those requirements. In particular it deals with:

  • the new bribery offences
  • corporate hospitality
  • the meaning of adequate procedures
  • prevention being the cure!
