Fraud Busters meet in Moscow
Our investigations expert gave insights on fraud, asset tracing and recovery to Moscow-based clients.
Event date: 08/06/2016
On 8 June, we hosted a Fraud, Asset Tracing, and Recovery seminar in Moscow, in partnership with the Deposit Insurance Agency: the Russian state corporation responsible for managing the liquidation process of failed banks, and one of our longstanding clients.
Building on the success of our hugely popular "Moscow Investigations Roadshow" in November 2015 and "Combatting Global Fraud – Recovering Assets" seminar in September 2013 organised by our investigations team in Moscow, this new event united Moscow's leading in-house legal, compliance and regulatory experts to discuss pioneering techniques in international tracing and recovery of assets, and debate on the most pertinent issues they face in today's climate.
More than 80 in-house lawyers and representatives of The Prosecutor General's Office and The Russian Investigative Committee joined us in Moscow to share insights and strengthen our efforts in the fight against fraud. Experienced in the highest profile, largest and first-of-their-type investigations lawyers Chris Hardman, Michael Roberts, Rebecca Wales, Cary Kochberg, Alexei Dudko and Denis Almakaev together with the DIA's top-notch team Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy Director General, and Yulia Medvedeva, Director of the Expert and Analytical Department, shared their unique asset-tracing and enforcement experience in the offshore jurisdictions. They provided practical insights in this growing area into the latest tools used to recover the proceeds of fraud.
In addition to notable keynote speakers, the seminar featured two sessions covering current fraud issues: case studies where the experts shed light on some ground-breaking precedents uncovering the largest ever fraud cases running to many billions of dollars and practical solutions, all with a global perspective.
