BLM and Three Raymond Buildings invite you to join us to discuss how in a rapidly changing regulatory environment, BLM’s new white collar crime and investigations offering can add value to your business.

The seminar will focus on the Bribery Act 2010 and the offence of failing to prevent bribery. We will also consider the increasing onus placed upon businesses to police their own operations and contracted third parties to prevent crime and the likelihood that more companies will find themselves in the criminal courts for failing to prevent the crimes of individuals.

The seminar will also touch on:

  • The findings and recommendations of the House of Lords Select Committee on the Bribery Act
  • The offence of failing to prevent facilitation of tax evasion created by the Criminal Finances Act 2017
  • The results of the Government’s Consultation on corporate liability for economic crime – anticipated in 2019 – and the call for a wider offence of failure to prevent economic crime
  • The Joint Committee on Human Rights’ recommendation for an offence of failing to prevent human rights abuses and the impact of the Modern Slavery Act 2015
  • The Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 – corporate AML obligations and the enforcement of financial and trade sanctions
  • The development of criminal liability for facilitation of the crimes of others
  • The recent history of self-reporting and Deferred Prosecution Agreements
