Over the next few months, our regulatory and investigations team will be hosting a webinar series focussed on corporate crime. Over three sessions, our specialists will provide you with practical advice to manage the legal complexities that arise from a fraud or white-collar crime event. Our series is designed to prepare your organisation to respond quickly to this type of event and limit the fall-out. We will also provide guidance as to how to manage whistleblower complaints, employee investigations, deal with asset recovery, third-party loss and remediation and regulator scrutiny.
