Criminal intent - key dispute trends from the Commercial Litigation Forum
If one theme stood out at this year's Commercial Litigation Forum, it was the encroachment of criminal law on the working lives of commercial lawyers. This issue was highlighted many times at the fifth forum, where Lord Grabiner QC headed up a senior line-up of judges, barristers and solicitors discussing the key dispute trends at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in London on 15 September. During the morning panel discussion, The Creeping Criminalisation of Corporate Misconduct, the growing pressure on commercial law firms to recruit in areas such as white-collar crime, despite a previous reluctance, became apparent as clients become increasingly concerned over aggressive regulation and anti-corruption legislation.
