Corporate Crime & Corruption


The Corporate Crime and Corruption Committee seeks to maintain the status of the City of London as a global financial powerhouse of vital interest to the UK. The Committee is particularly busy following the publication of the Economic Crime Plan 2 and Fraud Strategy, as well as around progress of the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill and proposals on failure to prevent fraud and corporate criminal liability.
