Andrew Smith attending Smart Practice in Trade Security conference

Partner Andrew Smith is attending and speaking at the Trade Security Journal’s Smart Practice in Trade Security conference today, Monday 26 June 2017, in London.

Smart Practice in Trade Security is a one-day event focused on key compliance challenges and the strategies to tackle them. Presenters will provide strategic guidance on cyber/data security: the threats and how to prepare for them, ensuring regulatory compliance of 3rd-party suppliers, dealing with counterfeit goods in the supply chain, developing practice in UK corporate crime regulation, the impact of US extraterritorial supply chain controls on non-US
businesses, Brexit and supply chains and more.

Andrew will discuss changes in the landscape of corporate crime and regulatory enforcement in the UK, such as:

• Key lessons from the UK’s first deferred prosecution agreements in Standard Bank, XYZ, Rolls Royce and Tesco.
• The new offence of failure to prevent facilitation of tax evasion – and the proposed extension of the Bribery Act 2010 to criminalise failure to prevent fraud and money laundering.
• The narrowing of legal privilege in the RBS and ENRC cases – and how this affects the conduct of corporate internal investigations and self-reporting to law enforcement.
