Challenges facing the Serious Fraud Office: Here and Abroad

Highlights

The panel will analyse a range of significant issues currently facing the SFO and, in some cases, its European counterparts.

The issues to be analysed and discussed will include:

  • The KBR judgement. Assessing what the Supreme Court ruling on section 2 powers will mean for obtaining evidence that is beyond the SFO’s jurisdiction.
  • The possibility and extent of cross-border, inter-agency cooperation in the wake of Brexit.
  • Deferred prosecution agreements. What have we learnt from the DPAs concluded so far? How does the French experience of them compare?
  • The challenges and approaches taken in notable recent investigations in the UK and Europe.
  • The effect of delays caused by Covid-19.
  • The possible implications of recent UK and European developments, such as the UK Law Commission’s corporate criminal liability review, calls for alignment of EU states’ anti-corruption laws and the European Banking Authority’s revised money laundering guidelines.

The panel has been assembled to ensure UK, European and SFO viewpoints are heard. It will include:
