O’Malley publishes “Directors’ Duties and Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance”

The Pell Center congratulates Dr. Patrick O’Malley on his recently published book, “Directors’ Duties and Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance: The ‘Good Steward’ in U.S. and U.K. Law and Practice.”

O’Malley is an adjunct fellow at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy and teaches graduate courses in Social Justice and Business Ethics and Business Law at Salve Regina University.  A Milan-based international corporate and securities lawyer, he is dual qualified as an attorney both in the United States and in England and Wales and serves a primarily European client base.  He also provides professional legal training at business organizations in Europe and the U.S., and occasionally in Africa and Central Asia, focusing on issues of international corporate governance, transparency and global efforts to combat corporate corruption and bribery.  O’Malley is currently a candidate for a European doctorate in law.

O’Malley’s book examines the systemic expectations of executive officers and compliance personnel when dealing with anti-bribery, corporate and securities law guidance.  He explores good governance developments concerning anti-bribery efforts in the U.S. and the U.K. and compares the fundamental national compliance experiences there, recognizing the expansion of directors’ duties with each new case of corporate malfeasance in both public and private companies.

“Directors’ Duties and Corporate Anti-Corruption Compliance” is published by Edward Elgar Publishing and is available to purchase here.
