The question on everyone’s mind since the announcement of the Director of the SFO on 4 June 2018 has been: how (if at all) will the new Director change the SFO’s strategic direction and enforcement priorities?
We have had the first insight into that topic with the speech delivered in September by Lisa Osofsky in her capacity as the new Director of the SFO at the Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime. The take home message was that Ms Osofsky expects the SFO to remain committed to ensuring that the United Kingdom is, and will continue to be, a high risk place for the world’s most sophisticated criminals to operate. She anticipates achieving that through global cooperation, the potentially expanded use of DPAs and technological advancements.
