Three Rahman Ravelli lawyers have written one of the expert chapters in The International Comparative Legal Guide - Business Crime 2021.
Aziz Rahman, the firm’s founder and senior partner, worked with legal directors Nicola Sharp and Syedur Rahman to write one of the Guide’s three major chapters. Their chapter, entitled “The Business Crime Landscape’’, details and analyses the current issues that are of greatest significance regarding law enforcement and business.
The possible effect of Brexit on matters such as money laundering and the extradition of suspects is examined in the chapter, as are Europe’s money laundering directives and developments in the prosecution of bribery and tax evasion. The chapter assesses the impact of unexplained wealth orders. It also outlines the use of deferred prosecution agreements and explains how companies should approach trying to secure one as an alternative to being prosecuted.
Cryptocurrency, anti-corruption enforcement by US regulators and market manipulation are all covered in the chapter. The trio also write about recent, ongoing developments such as the rapidly-growing investigations into Cum-Ex tax fraud and pandemic-related fraud.
This is the third consecutive year that Rahman Ravelli has been invited to contribute an expert chapter to the Guide. The firm has also provided an expert chapter for the last four years to the International Comparative Legal Guide - Corporate Investigations.
