Law firm McGuire Woods reports (unsourced) that the Director of the SFO has allayed some concerns about the impact of the Bribery Act 2010 on corporate hospitality, quoting Mr Green as saying:
“We are not interested in that sort of case. We are interested in hearing that a large company has mysteriously come second in bidding for a big contract. The sort of bribery we would be investigating would not be tickets to Wimbledon or bottles of champagne. We are not the “serious champagne office”.”
