In a world in which businesses face an ever-increasing compliance burden, the costs of failing to identify and manage business crime risks effectively have never been greater.

Through Shearman & Sterling’s UK Business Crime Forum – a new, regular, interactive webinar series –  those doing business in the UK can stay abreast of the latest events at the major enforcement authorities, significant decisions and outcomes, and recent legislative, rulemaking, consultation and policy developments.

On November 12, partner Thomas Donegan (London-Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory), Of Counsel Simon Dodds (London-Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory), and senior associate Mathew Orr (London-Litigation) discussed a variety of topics, including:

  • Recent trends and patterns across the enforcement landscape
  • The Serious Fraud Office's latest DPAs and what we can learn from them
  • The Financial Conduct Authority's enforcement priorities
  • The UK's autonomous sanctions regime post-Brexit
  • How COVID-19 is shaping enforcement policy and practice

View the slide deck from the UK Business Crime Forum.

Details of further webinars in the series will be available in due course.
