The event focused on critical aspects of asset recovery in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region. Topics included envisioning asset recovery in Ukraine, reflecting on the past year’s sanctions and future trends, piercing the corporate veil, enforcing against sovereign states, litigation funding in the CEE region, managing risk in greenwashing enforcement, and the role of technology in asset recovery.

Discussions explored strategies for effective asset recovery in Ukraine, the complexities of holding individuals accountable for corporate wrongdoing, legal frameworks for recovering assets from sovereign entities, the current state and future prospects of litigation funding, practical approaches to managing risk in cases of greenwashing, and the latest advancements in technology for asset tracing and recovery. The conference provided a platform for professionals to exchange knowledge and foster collaboration in advancing asset recovery practices in the CEE region.
