An interactive session hosted by four leading UK business crime experts. We are also delighted to be able to now announce that the panel will be joined by Sara Lawson KC, General Consel to the Serious Fraud Office.

 

In our discussion we will analyse the new approach of Nick Ephgrave CPM, the newly appointed Director of the SFO - with more arrests and raids in his first 4 months than the previous 5 years – combined with new powers and legislation to make prosecution of companies easier. The session will be of direct relevance to attendees based in the UK and overseas and will include the following points that are central to understanding the new landscape, and the risks it presents to businesses, executives and their legal advisers:

* Incentivising whistleblowers – can the US system help the UK increase the risk of improper conduct being uncovered.

* Greater use of dawn raids – what they are, how to prepare and how to respond.

* UK Governments Global Fraud Summit and renewed focus on co-operation with overseas jurisdictions, including the US

*New offences in the Economic Crime & Corporate Transparency Act 2023 – intentionally making it easier to prosecute businesses.

* Speedier investigations and trials.

* Other recent developments.

The session will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the new enforcement landscape informally over drinks.
