HPP held a well-attended and well-received seminar entitled ‘The UK Bribery Act and its effect on Finnish companies’ at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Helsinki on 1 February. HPP partner and English solicitor, Andrew Cotton, examined the new legislation, discussed how Finnish companies might be held liable of the corporate offence of ‘failure to prevent bribery’ and gave some practical tips on how to implement measures to reduce the risk of committing an offence under the Act. The audience was made up of HPP’s clients and contacts and included some of Finland’s largest multinationals. The seminar aroused lively discussion on issues concerning compliance with the Act making it a valuable exercise for all who attended.
