The giving and receiving of bribes or secret commissions has long been a scourge of honest commercial transactions, and the civil penalties resulting from a finding of bribery are far reaching and draconian.
In this Short Introduction to the Civil Law of Bribery Charles Dougherty KC and David Thomas provide an overview of the causes of action that can be deployed in cases of bribery and the remedies available. The guide, which was first published in 2014, has proved to be a useful resource for commercial practitioners searching for clarity in what is an evolving and potentially confusing area of the law. It has been fully revised and updated for 2018 with a focus on recent case law including UBS v Kommunale Wasserwerke Leipzig and BFS Group v Foley.
