November 2011 – Saunders contributes to Serious Fraud Office Economic Crime guide
Saunders Law Limited has written a chapter for the Serious Fraud Office's (SFO) first edition of Serious Economic Crime. The publication, intended as a boardroom guide to prevention and compliance, is a vital commentary for company managers on the impact of anti-fraud and anti-corruption legislation.
Written by the Chairman of Saunders Law Limited, Stephen Gilchrist, the chapter analyses serious crime in the financial services sector.
Mr Gilchrist said: "Economic crime and the surrounding legislation are a minefield in to which companies and their directors cannot afford to enter. I used our firm's wealth of experience in dealing with the SFO and FSA in financial crime matters to create an accessible and informative guide for business leaders."
The 36 chapter book represents a collaboration between the SFO, private law firms and public sector organisations, as part of the SFO's drive to work in closer partnership with companies and financial institutions.
Saunders' financial services team, led by Stephen Gilchrist, is built on 37 years' litigation experience, particularly in regulatory, fraud and crime. From securing the first ever insider dealing acquittal in the FSA R v Rimmington prosecution, to having the FD of Wickes plc cleared in a ten month trial involving 55gb of electronic disclosure, the firm is renowned for its pledge to provide a service without compromise with a fearless commitment to clients.
