European White Collar Crime Report

A summary of the key legislative and enforcement developments in white collar crime across Europe

January 2018

In the Q4/2017 issue of our European White Collar Crime Report we continue to monitor prosecutorial attitudes across Europe for Deferred Prosecution Agreements, and in particular we highlight the French Deferred Prosecution Agreement negotiated by Allen & Overy’s Paris team.

It is clear that Europe continues to work towards strengthening its drive to combat economic crime, introducing new bodies with significant enforcement powers, most notably the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), which is due to become operational in mid-January 2018. In addition, a wave of new guidance has been introduced across Europe covering various topics, including anti-money laundering, information sharing, counter terrorist financing and in France, corrupt practices.  

Across the EU, the Fourth Money Laundering Directive (MLD4) remains to be implemented across all jurisdictions, despite the EU having now reached political agreement on the Fifth Money Laundering Directive (MLD5).
