THE PROGRESS OF UK WHITE-COLLAR INVESTIGATIONS AND TRIALS DURING LOCKDOWN

On 19 May, Cadwallader published an article saying that regulators and enforcement agencies in the United Kingdom, while not immune to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, have proved to be relatively adaptable with a continued appetite for enforcement.  It says that while there is no cohesive policy regarding enforcement, and delays are likely to plague all ongoing investigations, there does not seem to be a sizeable discontinuance of matters or a change in expectations.  The article provides a roundup of current enforcement actions by a number of agencies enforcing against economic crime, and potential areas of future scrutiny – FCA, NCA, HMRC, CPS, SFO and OFSI.
