Reply Link Citylawfirmworker 24 January 2011 at 17:08 You can bet that Shell has been checking and verifying third parties for a long time before the Bribery Act 2010 – google “FCPA”. Is it really that strange that in a tender process an organisation is asking another organisation for a list of its policies, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption?

Shell are asking about law firms who are are acting on the other side of the table. Reply Link Anonymous 25 January 2011 at 01:55 Kudos to Shell, but this is nothing new for US-based companies. Since 2005, my company has been screening ALL third parties who interact with foreign officials on our behalf. This includes lawyers, accountants, lobbyists, and even travel agents who help us get visas. It’s a lot of work, but we’ve found it is worth the effort.
