YHFF masterclass - 10 May 2017 - Trends and developments in fraud prosecution

Date:
10th May 2017 - 10th May 2017
Location:
KPMG, Leeds

The YHFF masterclasses are a great opportunity to update your knowledge on the latest issues affecting your business, and also to network with your fellow YHFF members, and share knowledge, experiences - and refreshments at the end of the afternoon!

We are delighted to welcome James Wilson from the Serious Fraud Office (SFO,) who is going to provide an update on the latest trends and developments in fraud prosecution, with a focus on corporate investigations, developments at the SFO regarding investigations and messages to take from these.  James will explore some recently concluded cases, touching on changes to court processes and sentencing trends and look at the developing use of Deferred Prosecution Agreements (DPAs), following their introduction back in 2014, and the SFO’s approach to them.

Following James’s update, Nichola Peters, Head of Corporate Crime at Addleshaw Goddard, will provide a lawyer’s perspective on fraud prosecution and the use of DPAs including the context to DPAs, the court process and when DPAs may be appropriate, and will subsequently explore the benefits of self-reporting and what co-operation in such a process means.
