Deming provides a comprehensive analysis of the foreign bribery laws, and related laws and regulations, in all of the major common law jurisdictions. For each jurisdiction, careful attention is given to laws that may expose an individual or entity to private or commercial bribery in foreign settings as well as to the application of laws relating to money laundering and accounting and record-keeping practices to situations involving foreign bribery. Throughout, special attention is given to explaining the criteria used in each jurisdiction to establish liability on the part of an entity or organisation.

Over the past decade, countries have increasingly used settlements that is, any procedure short of a full trial to conclude foreign bribery cases and have imposed billions in monetary sanctions. There exists a gap in knowledge, however, regarding settlement practices around the world and the disposition of these monetary sanctions notably through the lens of recovery of stolen assets. Left out of the Bargain, a study by the Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative (StAR), provides an overview of settlement practices by civil and common law countries that have been active in the fight against foreign bribery. Using the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) as its point of reference, the study addresses concerns voiced by the international community: What happens to the money associated with the settlements, and is it being returned to those most directly harmed by the corrupt practices? And what can be done to assist those countries harmed by foreign bribery? Left out of the Bargain has found that 395 settlement cases took place between 1999 and mid-2012, resulting in a total of US$6.9 billion in monetary sanctions imposed against companies and individuals. Of this amount, nearly US$6 billion came from settlements that took place in a country different from that of the allegedly bribed foreign public officials. But only about US$197 million, or 3 percent, has been returned or ordered returned to the countries whose officials were accused of accepting bribes. Left out of the Bargain urges countries whose officials were allegedly bribed to intensify their efforts to investigate and prosecute the providers and recipients of foreign bribes, hence improving these countries' prospects for recovery of assets lost through corruption. The study also calls for more proactive international cooperation and coordination to ensure that all affected countries are afforded the opportunity to seek redress for harms suffered and for the recovery of assets thus fulfilling the principles set out in UNCAC.

The OECD Convention on Bribery established an international standard for compliance with anti-corruption rules, and has subsequently been adopted by the thirty-four OECD members and six non-member countries. As a result of the Convention and national implementation laws, companies and managers now risk tough sanctions if they are caught bribing foreign officials. The UK Bribery Act 2010 is only one example of this development. The second edition of this, the only commentary on the Convention, provides law practitioners, company lawyers and academic researchers with comprehensive guidance on the OECD standards. It includes case examples as well as the FCPA Resource Guide 2012 and the 2009 OECD Recommendation for Further Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials with Annexes I and II.

The current statutory criminal law of bribery is functional and cases are prosecuted successfully, but it is old and anachronistic, has never been consolidated and there are inconsistencies of language and concepts between the various provisions and a small number of potentially significant gaps in the law. The result is a bribery law which is difficult to understand for the public and difficult to apply for prosecutors and the courts. This draft legislation follows the Law Commission's consultation paper (no 185, ISBN 9780118404457) and final report ("Reforming bribery", Law Com. 313, ISBN 9780102958164). The purpose of the draft Bill is to reform the criminal law of bribery to provide for a new consolidated scheme of bribery offences to cover bribery both in this country and abroad. The Bill replaces the offences at common law and under the Prevention of Corruption Acts 1889 to 1916 with two general offences covering the offer, promise and giving of an advantage or the request, agreeing to receive or acceptance of an advantage. The Bill also creates a discrete offence of bribery of a foreign public official and a new offence of negligent failure of commercial organisations to prevent bribery. The other main provisions of the Bill include: extra-territorial jurisdiction to prosecute bribery committed abroad by persons ordinarily resident in the UK as well as UK nationals, and UK corporate bodies; replacing the existing requirement for the Attorney General's consent to prosecute a bribery offence; a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment for all new offences, save the corporate offence, which will carry an unlimited fine.
