Internal contradiction – the SFO on privilege

26 April 2019

In her recent speech, Serious Fraud Office (SFO) Director Lisa Osofsky said that companies being investigated should be waiving their right to privilege if they wish to cooperate with the SFO.

For the SFO to call on companies to waive privilege in the name of cooperation seems to fly in the face of both existing law and the SFO’s previously-stated position.

Rahman Ravelli's Senior Partner Aziz Rahman wrote an article, which featured on Fraud Intelligence, looking at the SFO’s stance on what constitutes cooperation.
