A one-day conference
Live Virtual Event
Date: 22nd September 2021
Reported corporate crime and fraud in Ireland has increased significantly. This rise can be explained not only because more crimes are being detected, but also because more fraud and corporate crime is happening. This conference will look at the issues surrounding investigating white collar crimes, the new Directive on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law, the latest trends and threats, asset recovery and much more.
This Conference is a unique live virtual event from our own custom-built CMG Studios. Initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the additional interactive elements, as well as increased Q&A opportunities throughout the day, giving you more opportunity to gain real practical insights on the key issues that are important to you.
This event will be of real interest to, prosecutors, lawyers in private practice, government officials, insurance industry, finance professionals, CEO’s to name a few.
