June 28, 2018
Nick Johnson QC from Exchange Chambers has had a guest blog published in Canada’s leading white collar crime publication, White Collar Post.
In his blog, Nick shares his experience of acting for the Managing Director of Skansen Interiors Ltd, a London based fit-out and refurbishment contractor, in a bribery case which concluded April 2017. The company itself and two of its directors faced charges under the Bribery Act 2010 (“UKBA”), relating to making improper payments in order to secure contracts for two City of London office refurbishments worth about £6m.
The case was a legal first in the UK in that the company, despite having carried out an internal investigation and self-reported to the UK National Crime Agency, then faced a Section 7 UKBA prosecution before a jury in the Crown Court.
