2019's Key Sessions:
When the money has gone – The advantages of an insolvency process in a fraud context
This panel looks at recovery through an insolvency process and the advantages that this offers – including powers of insolvency practitioners in an international context.
The individual and the state – frauds against states and state-owned companies
This panel considers particular issues arising from frauds against states and state-owned entities. It considers defences commonly argued by fraudsters (for example that allegations are politically motivate), and practical difficulties often faced by these claimants (for example, an inability to respond quickly to litigation due to funding problems or internal decision-making processes).
Accidental involvement – what happens when third parties such as banks become involved in fraud?
Fraudsters often perpetrate their frauds through third parties such as banks, both in the local jurisdiction and abroad. This panel looks at the possible liabilities of these parties, how to obtain evidence from them, and how they can protect themselves
Red Alert – triage in the first moments after a fraud
When a fraud is first discovered, there are numerous key decisions that lawyers and clients must make. Whether to choose the criminal or civil recovery route, whether to focus on domestic or international recovery strategies, while managing reputational issues and preserving evidence. This panel looks at best practice in the first hours after a fraud is discovered.
Judgment – but is the battle over?
This panel looks at how to enforce internationally, through a judgment and in an insolvency context – it considers legal routes to enforcement, and practical issues (such as the ease of enforcing against different asset classes)
When civil and criminal collide
This panel compares international civil, criminal and regulatory recovery actions – with a focus of the outcome for victims
