Do you trust your employees? Or your colleagues? What, if anything, should you do if your answer is no?

Internal corporate fraud is frequently splashed across newspapers and remains a concern that crosses the minds of upper management, employees and investors alike. From the misappropriation of assets to multi-billion dollar collusion schemes, the recurrence of fraud is common but often challenging to detect when it begins.

On Tuesday, February 5, 2013, Fasken Martineau’s Commercial Litigation Group will host a complimentary breakfast seminar to provide an overview of some key prevention and detection measures. In a discussion moderated by Geoff Cowper, panellists Chuck Harrison, Andrew Nathanson, Tracey Cohen and Richard Berrow will be joined by Bob J. Sandy, a partner in PwC’s Consulting Services group, while addressing the following topics:

  • Brief overview of internal fraud (including simple theft of goods, fraud and embezzlement, forgery and fraud, bribery and kickbacks, trade-secret theft and Ponzi schemes)
  • Preventing internal fraud
  • Monitoring for fraud and investigating when it occurs
  • Profiling fraudsters
  • Potential liability to third parties and insuring against loss
  • Responding to misconduct and the potential for recovery

Please join us for this seminar. Register early to secure your seat as space is limited.

Note: Lawyers may apply this 1.5 credit hour seminar towards their Continuing Professional Development requirements under the Law Society of British Columbia.
