"Bribery and other forms of corruption are among the greatest risks concerning audit committee members and board members in general of multinational corporations. This book provides excellent, practical advice to those board members in overseeing effective risk management programs and dealing with specific problems when they occur."
Dennis R. Beresford, Professor of Accounting, University of Georgia, current or former audit committee chairman of five public corporations, and former Financial Accounting Standards Board Chairman

"Bribery and Corruption: Navigating the Global Risks is an excellent resource for compliance, audit, and litigation support practitioners. The book provides an exceptional overview of relevant global anti–bribery and corruption laws and regulations as well as specific guidance to help ensure compliance with these laws. Additionally, the book provides comprehensive coverage of anti–corruption programs and controls, including policies and procedures, risk assessment processes, and effective due diligence programs. This book is a must–read for those involved with the prevention, detection, or investigation of bribery and corruption as the authors provide a practical approach to resolving such complex issues as the FCPA and commercial bribery, and other forms of corrupt activities."
Paul E. Zikmund, Senior Director, Forensic Audit, Tyco International

"Bribery and Corruption: Navigating the Global Risks should be on the shelf of every CEO of a multinational company and every lawyer advising them. The authors provide excellent historical perspective on the recent anti–bribery mania, highly useful guidance for professionals designing compliance programs, and a road map for companies and their lawyers who are investigating possible corruption or considering an acquisition abroad. It′s a very thoughtful resource."
Aaron R. Marcu, Partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, and former federal prosecutor

"With ever increasing investment and development in the emerging markets, there is an inherent need for understanding the specific risks facing companies as they move across borders. The level of detail that Ernst & Young provides in this book on regional and country–specific trends and activity presents attorneys in varying jurisdictions with a powerful resource in guiding their clients into new geographies. As an attorney in an emerging market, I found the information extremely valuable and believe this book is an essential read for any anti–bribery and corruption practitioner."
Isabel Franco, Partner, KLA–Koury Lopes Advogados, São Paulo, Brazil
