Directors' Duties and Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance

The 'Good Steward' in US and UK Law and Practice

Patrick J. O'Malley 

Summary:   Dr. Patrick J. O’Malley examines good governance developments concerning anti-bribery efforts in the US and the UK, recognizing that with each new major case of corporate malfeasance the parameters of directors’ duties change and expand. Taking this expansion of roles and expectations into account, and acknowledging the respective increase in exposure to civil, criminal and reputational liabilities, Dr. O’Malley compares the fundamental national compliance experiences of the US and UK. Investigating anti-bribery, corporate and securities law and guidance, this engaging book explores systemic expectations of directors, executive officers and compliance personnel in public and private companies.
