Michael Bowes QC is due to speak at a Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) event on 11 June 2019 in Whitehall, London.

RUSI is the world’s oldest independent think tank on international defence and security, and has a global presence.

Michael, who specialises in business crime, civil fraud, financial services and international sanctions has been invited to take part in a panel discussion on the ‘Paper Launch: A Civil approach to tackling Criminal Finances’, led by Helena Wood, Associate Fellow, RUSI and author of the paper. Mick Creedon, Former Chief Constable and National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) lead on Proceeds of Crime also makes up the panel.

The Paper Launch follows on from the Government’s Serious and Organised Crime Strategy 2018, launched in November 2018, which states that they will use “new and improved powers and capabilities to identify, freeze, seize or otherwise deny criminals access to their finances, assets and infrastructure”.
