Law360 seeks Zulfi Meerza’s thoughts on the SFO’s latest investigation

Author: Zulfi Meerza  18 March 2024

With the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) beginning its fifth investigation in the five months since Nick Ephgrave took over as Director, Law360 asked Zulfi Meerza for his assessment.

The latest probe, into alleged fraud involving property developers Carlauren Group, is another indicator that the SFO is targeting large-scale, domestic fraud.

Zulfi, a former senior investigative lawyer at the SFO, explained that Ephgrave will know that by targeting conduct in the UK, the SFO can obtain document and witness evidence more quickly, using fewer resources. Problems with disclosure have previously led to the collapse of a number of high-profile SFO cases.

But Zulfi stressed that the SFO’s resources should not be completely diverted from complex international economic crime, "as the U.K.'s primary white-collar enforcement agency."
