The Committee’s goal is also to promote awareness within the business community and among transactional lawyers of the growing significance of novel criminal defence tactics. The Committee has recently been focussing on the new trends of international cooperation in criminal matters.

“I’m delighted to be appointed as an officer of the IBA’s Business Crime Committee, and I am looking forward to working with my fellow committee officers and providing an effective forum to discuss matters of interest and importance regarding white collar crime.”
