Teaser Programme

Tackling rogue companies

George Greenwood, Journalist, The Times
Duncan Hames, Director of Policy, Transparancy International UK
Claire Jenkins, Forensic Accountant, Integrity and Enforcement Unit, Companies House
Michael Levi, Professor of Criminology, Cardiff University
Chair: Frances Coulson, Fraud Advisory Panel, INSOL Europe and R3

The abuse of companies to facilitate fraud and money laundering has been a subject of much interest and debate over the past ten years. Yet new cases continue to come to light exposing the ease in which companies can be set up (or taken over) both here and abroad for nefarious reasons. More recently there have been examples of fraudsters exploiting the system to take advantage of government stimulus schemes. 


This panel session will examine what, if any, progress has been made to address this problem, what more can be done, and the important role that professionals can play, drawing upon a broad range of perspectives from the media, government, not-for-profit sectors.

Secret agents, smart contracts and crypto-assets: recovering funds in cryptocurrency fraud

Aidan Larkin, CEO, Asset Reality Ltd
Matthew Lavy, Barrister, 4 Pump Court
Catherine Naylor, Partner, Gowling WLG (UK) LLP

Amardeep Thandi, Associate Director, Control Risks
Chair: Frances Coulson, Fraud Advisory Panel, INSOL Europe and R3

In late 2019 the UK became the first jurisdiction to attempt to define the status of cryptoassets and smart contracts in law. This panel session will consider the latest developments and practical implications for counter fraud and asset recovery professionals working with new and emerging technologies.

Leading experts will provide insights into the role of smart contracts in the prevention and detection of fraud, the roles and responsibilities of cryptocurrency agents, and explore how cryptoassets can be recovered.
 

Making fraudsters pay: the counter fraud practitioner’s toolkit

Stéphane Bonifassi, Co-founder, International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators
Kevin Hellard, President, Insolvency Practitioners Association
Gary Forbes, Assistant Director, HM Revenue and Customs
Chair: Bart Heynickx, Co-Chair, INSOL Europe Anti-Fraud Forum

Initiating criminal or civil proceedings against fraudsters is just not enough. We want to make them pay. Or, in more legal terms, we want to be able to enforce legal decision upon them and seize their assets. That is not an easy task. Fraudsters are not only ‘good’ in committing their fraud, they are even better in hiding their identity and their assets, in the UK, the EU and offshore.

This session will focus on techniques to locate assets and turn them into value for the victims of the fraud. Such an objective can be achieved through criminal proceedings but also using civil measures such as (international) attachment proceedings. It is never easy and the element of surprise will always play an important role.
 

Digital forensics: gathering evidence in the online world

Matthew  McGhee, Barrister, Twenty Essex
Vijay Rathour, Partner, Grant Thornton UK LLP
Héctor Sbert, Partner, LaWants
Chair: Bart Heynickx, Co-Chair, INSOL Europe Anti-Fraud Forum

The world is digital. Fraud has gone digital. Therefore our efforts to fight fraud and retrieve evidence have no choice but to also go digital. Digital forensic operations have to respect the principles of legitimacy, necessity and proportionality. If not, it could lead to inadmissible evidence. A difficult balance and task indeed.

This session’s panel of leading experts in the field of digital forensics will discuss and explain how digital evidence can be obtained and what forensic equipment and software tools are available today.
