Webinar recording: The rise of the white collar criminal
Building on game changing announcements made at last year’s anti-corruption summit, the UK government’s Criminal Finances Bill currently making its way through Parliament with a raft of new powers for the detection and enforcement of economic crime, is the latest in a growing trend of measures using criminal law to force changes in corporate behaviour.
This, coupled with recent significant enforcement activity and the likelihood that there will be further expansion of corporate criminal liability with the introduction of a new wider corporate offence of failing to prevent financial crime, places the UK economic crime regime on the cusp of the biggest change in its history that will impact on, and have far reaching consequences for, every business.
Barry Vitou, partner and head of Pinsent Masons' corporate crime team, examines the landscape to date and considers changes on the horizon in this webinar, using his expert knowledge to give specialist advice on how to navigate this area.
