Dear YFLA Members,
Please see the link below for the YFLA July 2020 Newsletter.
This issue contains a number of excellent contributions covering both criminal and civil developments and drawing from the YFLA’s solicitor and barrister membership.
- Richard Clayman (Kingsley Napley LLP) has produced a fascinating read in which he explores whether lockdown is causing more fraud and whether Lord Sumption’s Covid-19 interventions match his so highly respected judgments. Members are invited to arrive at their own conclusions, but, as ever, Mr Clayman’s intervention is clever, researched and witty.
- Jessica Foley and Imtiyaz Chowdhury (both of CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP) have written a detailed and engaging piece on Account Freezing Orders. Their article is an important read for those interested in this enforcement power, which is often overlooked in risk analyses.
- Alice McDonald (Peters & Peters Solicitors LLP) has contributed an excellent case study which explores human rights arguments in the context of procedural aspects to fraud litigation. Her thoughtful summary of a decision in the RP Explorer litigation currently before the Commercial Court will be helpful as well as hopeful reading to those instructed late and on behalf of recalcitrant defendants.
- Yasin Patel and Amy Hazlewood (both of Church Court Chambers) close off the newsletter where it started: fraud arising out of Covid-19. The article is a must-read for the YFLA’s criminal membership who are anticipating which specific criminal offences are likely to arise in a Covid-19 era. The article is thoroughly researched and commends itself to a careful reading.
Sincere thanks are due to all of our excellent contributors. We hope you enjoy their fine work and encourage all members to volunteer articles for future newsletters.
