SFO CAN REQUEST OVERSEAS DOCUMENTS FROM NON-UK COMPANIES

Allen & Overy on 22nd October published an article saying that a recent court ruling confirmed that the SFO can validly issue a section 2 notice with extraterritorial application.  It can compel production of documents held extraterritorially by a UK company, or issue a notice to foreign companies in respect of documents held outside the UK if there is a “sufficient connection” between that company and the UK.
