Tougher penalties for UK companies committing white-collar crime

Jonathan Fisher QC is quoted in a recent FT article discussing new penalty guidelines pertaining to British companies that bribe foreign officials to win contracts, commit fraud, or launder money.

Under the new guidelines guilty parties can expect to see fines similar to those handed out in the US, with Jonathan stating that "because of the cross-border element to fraud and bribery investigations, it was really key in the UK that we get fines that have some sort of accord with what is going on in the States."

Specialising in financial crime cases, Jonathan is described in Chambers UK 2014 as being "calm, sure, and deadly at spotting the weaknesses of the opponent's case" and can be contacted to discuss any of the issues raised in the article at fisher@devchambers.co.uk.
