How Will EU Exit Impact on White Collar Crime Enforcement - Global Investigations Review

Global Investigations Review is a magazine which focuses on white-collar crime. A feature in their October edition concerned the possible impact of the UK exiting the EU on white-collar crime enforcement, legislation and regulation.

"Many UK lawyers believe the effects of an exit would in fact be minimal. Roger Sahota in London is typical.

“While there may be great changes in Britain, the impact on white-collar crime would be negligible,” he said. “The UK has decided to repatriate crime and policing laws from the EU well before any referendum takes place.”

Sahota said the net effect of the UK’s block opt-out is that: “The UK will be largely free to determine, regulate and enforce its own white-collar crime laws, regardless of whether it decides to leave the EU or not.”
