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 Christoph Haid and Georgiana Badescu from Schoenherr, and Robin Lööf, Karolos Seeger and Friedrich Popp from Debevoise for a discussion on white collar enforcement trends in 2021.
