C5's 28th Forum on Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery (Geneva, March 2015)

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Members of 20 Essex Street are delighted to be supporting C5's 28th Forum on Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery (one Europe's leading conferences on Civil Fraud). The conference will be held in Geneva on 19 and 20 March 2015 and members of chambers are running a panel session entitled "When to Use The F-word" on the Thursday afternoon.

As associate sponsors, 20 Essex Street can offer a 20% discount on the conference price to its clients; enquiries should be sent to our Marketing Executive, Marie Sparkes.

Further details of our panel session are included below, or full conference information can be found in the course brochure.

 

"When to Use The F-word"

We all think we know what “Fraud” means, but can we always identify the fraudster? And can we confidently judge when we must allege fraud, when we might allege fraud, and when we positively must not allege fraud?

Moderator: Duncan Matthews QC Panellists: Stephen Atherton QC, Sion Richards (Partner, Jones Day),  Natalia Chumak (Partner, Signature Litigation LLP), Will Davis (Partner, Grant Thornton)

Topics covered:

  • Understanding “Blind-eye” fraud – the Friday afternoon syndrome?

  • Attribution: when does the fraud exception apply?

  • Limitation: when does alleging fraud help and when not?

  • The reluctant arbitrator: when might court proceedings be needed?

  • Litigation against multiple parties and asserting multiple potential causes of action: can a traffic accident be avoided?
