Dentons, the global law firm, announced the launch of its groundbreaking interactive web-based tool that puts key aspects of global anti-corruption laws at the users' fingertips, allowing for quick, customizable comparisons across multiple jurisdictions.
Leveraging Dentons' global platform and award-winning commitment to technological innovation, the Firm launched this first-of-its kind, free platform to allow corporate leaders to create customized user-friendly comparisons of the laws. It is available at https://www.antibriberylaws.com/ .
"We're delighted to offer this value-add to our clients," said Michelle J. Shapiro, partner in Dentons' White Collar and Government Investigations group and creator of the tool. "Our easy to use online platform draws on the knowledge, experience and resources of Dentons to distill the complex web of global anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws into a customizable, easy to digest, format."
Selecting from a list of 23 countries, including the Czech Republic, with plans to expand, users can quickly learn about, compare and contrast laws from up to three countries, across a list of 16 key points, including a description of prohibited conduct, jurisdictional scope, whether promotional and facilitation payments are allowed, possible direct and ancillary penalties, whether deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements are available and links to statutory texts and enforcement resources. The results of each individual search can easily be shared by email or on social media, and include the appropriate Dentons contact for follow-up support. The tool is also available as an app for smartphone use.
