Financial crime and investigations update for UK corporates


The law and practice relating to financial crime and investigations is evolving fast. In the past 18 months we have seen two new Acts aimed at combatting financial crime (including the creation of two new corporate criminal offences), the implementation of the Fourth Money Laundering Directive, new case law, guidance from investigating authorities, the first few Deferred Prosecution Agreements under the Bribery Act 2010 and government consultations on plans to extend corporate criminal liability further.

This article provides a high level overview of these developments for UK companies.
