Jenner & Block Partner Christian Tuddenham participated in a roundtable discussion on the subject of “Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery: International Challenges”for Risk & Compliance magazine. “The modus operandi of any fraudster is often specific to his or her environment, and the opportunities and weaknesses inherent within that environment,” he tells Risk & Compliance. “It is therefore essential for any adviser to understand the operations and business model of the organization in question before he or she will be in a position to help design protections against potential fraudsters.” Looking ahead to the next year and beyond, Mr. Tuddenham anticipates that data and cyber security weakness will be an area of focus – both for those who commit fraud and those fighting to stop it. Mr. Tuddenham also comments on the developing face of English jurisprudence with regard to piercing the corporate veil and identifies some of the key factors and strategies in successful international asset recovery and enforcement.
Mr. Tuddenham is a solicitor-advocate and member of the firm’s Complex Commercial Litigation Practice. He advises financial institutions and companies worldwide across a range of specialisms in both litigation and arbitration, including securities litigation, fraud and economic tort claims, shareholder and joint venture disputes, and asset tracing/enforcement matters. He also advises and represents organisations and individuals in connection with public and private investigations.
