Legal Director Neil Williams tells Law 360 about the Serious Fraud Office’s continuing tendency to drop investigations.



The Serious Fraud Office’s decision to end its 11-month probe into bank note producer De La Rue and allegations of corruption in South Sudan led to Rahman Ravelli Legal Director Neil Williams writing an article about the SFO’s record of dropping investigations. 

In the piece, which was published by Law 360, Neil also considered the SFO’s success rate in securing convictions in those investigations it does not drop. Neil noted that the SFO’s abandonment of the De La Rue investigation came just weeks after it had announced an end to its investigation into the engineering company ABB’s dealings with oil services provider Unaoil. The SFO has also closed its investigation into Euribor recently while 2020 has also seen the agency’s scrutiny of GlaxoSmithKline PLC and Rolls-Royce come to an end after a number of years.
