This event will explore the UK’s landmark reforms to the law on corporate criminal liability, introduced by the new Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act 2023 (ECCTA).

The panelists will focus on the practical considerations that company directors – and those advising them - need to know about in order to manage the risks and challenges posed by this historic development in the legal landscape on corporate transparency and economic crime.

Hot topics for discussion will include:
• The impact of ECCTA’s reforms to the legal test of a company’s ‘directing mind and will’.
• The new offence of failure to prevent fraud, addressing its extraterritorial scope and risk mitigation.
• Greenwashing claims.
• Potential follow-on civil liability and directors disqualification proceedings.
• Practical considerations for distressed situations from an insolvency practitioner’s perspective.
