MANAGING FINANCIAL CRIME RISKS IN CHALLENGING CIRCUMSTANCES

Webcast

Regulators and law enforcement agencies are clear that businesses must maintain effective measures to prevent and detect financial crime even when faced with challenging circumstances. While the current pandemic may be a once in a lifetime event, many of the issues that organizations are grappling with can arise in a wide variety of situations. It has never been more important for businesses to implement robust policies and procedures that allow them to continue to meet their legal and regulatory obligations during periods of disruption and uncertainty.

Partner Susanna Charlwood (London-Litigation) and Of Counsel Simon Dodds (London-Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory) moderated a discussion among partners Philip Urofsky (Washington, D.C.-Litigation), Brian Burke (New York & Shanghai-Litigation) and Thomas Donegan (London-Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory), and senior associate Mathew Orr (London-Litigation) examining the steps that businesses can take to manage financial crime risks during unexpected events and the practical challenges that organizations are likely to face. The panel also considered whether organizations could learn anything from the approaches being taken by regulators and law enforcement agencies across the globe in response to the current crisis.

The panel was held at 4:00 pm BST on May 12, 2020.
