Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP has been shortlisted in the ‘Innovation in Anti-bribery and Corruption’ category at the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards 2011, for work surrounding the new UK Bribery Act.
In response to the Bribery Act which affects almost every organisation operating in the UK, the dispute resolution team, led by partner Tony Lewis, developed Integrity, a flexible one-stop compliance solution for clients. The team recognised that for clients to be fully prepared for the new Act they needed input and advice not only from lawyers, but from a range of professional advisers such as accountants, investigators and training professionals.
Tony Lewis says: “Integrity provides one point of contact for clients liable under the Bribery Act, ensuring that, at the end of the day, they have solutions which meet their individual requirements on a sliding fixed fee scale. It is a unique approach which is being well received in the market. For it also to be recognised by the FT Innovative Lawyers judging panel is an incredible honour.”
Winners will be announced at the award dinner on 5 October at the Science Museum, London.
