In the last two weeks Jonathan Fisher QC has presented on some of the most topical financial crime issues.
Jonathan spoke at the White Paper Conference on Civil Fraud, discussing coat-tailing police freezing actions and the use of prosecution evidence in civil fraud actions. This raises the question of civil case following previous acquittals, which Jonathan addressed with reference to the situations in which evidence obtained during the criminal process can be used in civil actions, standards of proof and the challenges to these actions that might arise.
Jonathan also spoke at the recent Ark Group Conference, Sanctions Focus for Law Firms. Jonathan addressed the audience on contemporary problems in the sanctions and licensing regime, with the use of case studies and extensive professional experience to illuminate the key issues.
