Jonathan Fisher QC was published in The Times Brief on 6 February, in an article on the urgent reforms needed to corporate confiscation. It is thought that the contemporary model of ‘failure to prevent’ bribery and tax evasion offences will lead to an increase in corporate prosecutions. Accordingly, Jonathan establishes that the necessary reforms to confiscation include adjustments to the calculation of benefit from corporate wrongdoing and reframing the enforcement mechanism for confiscation orders.
This article accompanies a paper written by Vanessa Reid for the White Collar Crime Centre. The paper, Proceed with caution: The case for a narrowly tailored corporate confiscation scheme in the UK, is available here.
