Business Crime and Civil Fraud

Commission in a nutshell

The Business Crime and Civil Fraud Commission aims to strengthen existing relationships between AIJA members who practice in this ever-developing field, and to provide a forum in which members can share their extensive professional experiences. These experiences include issues involving, for example, money market and securities infractions, tax and insolvency offences, corruption and bribery, regulatory and corporate investigations, bank secrecy, money laundering, civil fraud and multijurisdictional asset tracing and recovery claims; the use of emergency injunctions; criminal fraud and international mutual legal assistance.

Members of the Commission include leading practitioners in this area from a number of jurisdictions, and the Commission aims to play a leading part in the academic development of the Association through regular seminars, working sessions and publications.

The need for the Commission is self evident : many business or corporate clients of AIJA members frequently discover, to their surprise, that they become increasingly involved as witnesses, potential witnesses, respondents, defendants or victims of financial investigations and regulatory enquiries both nationally and internationally.

The Business Crime and Civil Fraud Commission reflects the fact that many of the issues with which we are concerned may never see the inside of a criminal court in any jurisdiction. The Civil Courts and Regulatory Tribunals will continue to play an ever-increasing role in tracing of misappropriated assets, in the regulation of the securities industry and money markets and generally in the world of international commerce where wrongdoing is alleged. As a Commission, we aim, through our members, to be at the forefront of the continuing challenges in this ever-expanding field of law.
