Frances McLeod, one of FRA’s founding partners, discusses with Richard Bistrong, contributing editor of the FCPA blog and CEO of Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC, the global challenges of anti-bribery enforcement and the impact those initiatives have had on compliance programs and the local demand for bribes.
Frances speaks about the trend in globalization of enforcement; how the growing pressure to confirm has moved down the food chain and how even though regulatory laws may not be harmonized, cooperation amongst prosecutors is on the increase.
