Celia Wells to speak at 9th IBA/OECD Annual Anti-Corruption Conference in Paris
16 June 2011
Professor Celia Wells is an invited speaker at the 9th Annual Anti-Corruption Conference jointly organised by the International Bar Association and the OECD, to be held at the OECD Conference Centre, Paris, France on 23–24 June 2011.
The liability of legal persons for bribery of foreign public officials is a relatively new concept in many legal systems. The panel will provide an opportunity for regulators, prosecutors and academics from various civil and common law jurisdictions to outline the various legislative models for corporate liability, and the different approaches to investigating and prosecuting corporations. The session will discuss case studies of instances where companies have been successfully prosecuted and sanctioned, and the question of the interplay between corporate and individual prosecutions.
