A trio of Rahman Ravelli lawyers has contributed one of the major sections to The International Comparative Legal Guide to Business Crime 2020.
Rahman Ravelli founder and senior partner Aziz Rahman and legal directors Nicola Sharp and Syedur Rahman wrote one of the Guide’s three expert chapters. In their chapter, titled “The Business Crime Landscape’’, the three discuss the major issues that are currently of most importance.
The chapter examines the legal implications of Brexit in areas such as money laundering and extradition. It also covers unexplained wealth orders in detail and explains how they can be challenged. The chapter details what deferred prosecution agreements are, their use so far and the ways that companies can improve their chances of obtaining one. The law in relation to tax evasion, bribery and cryptocurrency is also outlined in the chapter.
It is the second year that Rahman Ravelli has been invited to contribute an expert chapter to the Guide. For three years the firm has also provided an expert chapter to the International Comparative Legal Guide to Corporate Investigations.
