(October 2023)

For more than 20 years, Corker Binning lawyers have provided advice and assistance in a number of high- profile and complex international law cases representing businesses and individuals, whether as witnesses or suspects, in transnational criminal cases and international investigations.

In this international focused issue of The Knowledge, our lawyers draw on their extensive experience and expertise in international criminal law to examine: (i) a recent court challenge to the UK sanctions regime, (ii) reforming corporate criminal liability in the UK, (iii) the centenary of INTERPOL and its quest for transparency, (iv) the proposed UN Cybercrime Convention, and (v) the tools available to the new SFO Director to seek and obtain evidence in cases with an international dimension.
