European Enforcement Trends 2021

24 November 2020

Webinar | 24 November, 2020 | 09:00 - 10:00am CET

2021 will bring important changes to the white collar enforcement landscape in Europe.  A non-exhaustive list would include:

  • The European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) will start active investigations and, in due course, prosecutions of crimes against the EU budget including fraud, corruption and tax avoidance.
  • The Wirecard scandal has shaken not only Germany and may trigger changes in both audit practices and regulatory oversight.
  • There is an uptick in European AML enforcement and the “FinCEN Files” have reinforced a pre-existing impetus for a strengthened and more coordinated EU enforcement framework.
  • The deadline for the implementation of the Whistleblower Directive approaches and trends in implementation by Member States and businesses are discernable.

Please join lawyers from Schoenherr and Debevoise & Plimpton for a discussion on white collar enforcement trends in 2021.
