International corporate crime expert to hold a briefing in Guernsey
Wednesday 10 October 2012
Barry Vitou, a Partner at city law firm Pinsent Masons, will be presenting the next Corporate Risk Solutions (CRS) breakfast briefing due to be held on Friday October 12.
The event will cover domestic and international developments in anti-bribery and corruption legislation and practice. The briefing aims to assist local businesses in identifying potential issues and to outline what is happening in the wider financial market place.
Barry heads up Pinsent Masons’ corporate crime team which specialises in corporate risk and cross-border corporate crime issues.
A regular speaker on corruption and money laundering, Barry provides advice to the Boards of both public and privately held companies on mitigating corporate bribery and corruption risk as well as anti-money laundering and associated investigations.
Barry’s International experience is extensive having represented clients across an impressive range of countries including US, Russia, Middle East and North Africa as well as a number of EU jurisdictions.
Having dealt with regulators from around the globe including in many jurisdictions in the offshore world, and having successfully represented clients defending criminal and civil worldwide money laundering investigations, Barry’s depth of knowledge in this area is unquestionable.
Darren Wadley, Managing Director, CRS is delighted that Barry accepted his invitation to the island:
“There have been a number of changes to legislation in this area over the last couple of years – not least the new bribery act which came into force last year. Companies from across all sectors, not just finance, have to be extra vigilant in this area and ensure that their reporting processes are robust.
I am sure that Barry will provide us with some interesting insight into what is happening in the global market place and into the very complex area of corporate fraud and corruption.”
The briefing takes place on Friday October 12 in the Dorey Room at St James. Registration is from 8.00am and the presentation begins at 8.30am. The event will end around 9.30am.
