A Discussion with David Green CB QC

calendarclock - (GMT)

A discussion with David Green CB QC, Director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), hosted by RUSI's Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies.

After six years at the helm of the SFO, David Green will be stepping down in 2018.

His time as Director has seen the repositioning of the SFO as an effective and credible investigator and prosecutor of top level fraud and commercial bribery. Examples of SFO cases include Rolls-Royce, Barclays, Libor, Tesco, GPT, GSK, ENRC, BAT, Airbus, Rio Tinto, Alstom and G4S/Serco as well as more traditional investment fraud. 

The SFO has also made good use of new statutory powers to enter into Deferred Prosecution Agreements, bringing £650m to the Treasury from four DPAs and £65m in confiscation payments. 

The event will be chaired by Alison Levitt QC, Partner and Head of the Business Crime group at Mishcon de Reya, and a RUSI Trustee. 

The event will begin at 1700.
