FCPA Flash – A Conversation With Matthew Wagstaff (Joint Head of Bribery and Corruption at the U.K. Serious Fraud Office)

The FCPA Flash podcast [1] provides in an audio format the same fresh, candid, and informed commentary about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related topics as readers have come to expect from the written posts on FCPA Professor.

This FCPA Flash episode [2] is a conversation with Matthew Wagstaff, Joint Head of Bribery and Corruption at the U.K. Serious Fraud Office. In the episode, Wagstaff discusses: (i) whether the Bribery Act’s so-called adequate procedures defense has motivated corporates to adopt best practices compliance policies and procedures to a greater extent than prior to the Bribery Act; (ii) the U.K. deferred prosecution agreement regime including a response to criticism that the regime is actually a step backwards in terms of motivating corporate self-reports; and (iii) the meaning of “success” of an anti-corruption law.

FCPA Flash is sponsored by the Red Flag Group [3]. The Red Flag Group assists companies in developing and maintaining efficient and effective corporate governance and compliance programs, and has a proven track record in providing integrity due diligence investigations in 194 countries.
